What is an apprenticeship?
An apprenticeship is a paid job where the employee learns and gains valuable experiences.
Alongside on-the-job training, apprentices spend at least 20% of their working hours completing off-the-job learning which leads to a nationally recognised qualification.
An apprenticeship includes:
- paid employment with annual leave
- hands on experience in a sector/role of interest
- at least 20% off-the-job training
- formal assessment which leads to a nationally recognised qualification.
Edge Hill University is an Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) approved end-point assessment organisation (EPAO). All apprenticeships have an end-point assessment (EPA) as part of the apprenticeship standard.Find out more about EPAs
