Work-based training programmes which lead to nationally recognised qualifications
At East Sussex College, we work collaboratively with employers in delivering the job training and qualifications that Apprentices need to complete their Apprenticeship Framework.
Apprenticeship programmes are made up of a framework of qualifications
A taught qualification, designed to develop the essential skills and knowledge needed to be competent at the job role.
An assessed qualification, designed to judge the application of skills and knowledge to a competent level.
The application of essential communication and numeracy skills in the job role including personal learning and thinking skills.
Employer Rights and Responsibilities
Knowledge of what is needed to comply with essential employment legislation to ensure fairness, equality, and health and safety in the workplace.
How does it work?
Apprenticeships are an effective and affordable way to provide training for your staff. Our apprenticeship partnership will provide your Apprentices with all the training they need and is free of charge to those under 19 years old at the start of their programme.
As the employer, you are responsible for paying the Apprentice’s wages, to cover their time spent working and also their time spent training as a part of the Apprenticeship programme.
