ABOUT AN APPRENTICESHIP

WHAT IS AN APPRENTICESHIP

Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes for people aged 16 and over. An Apprenticeship means that you have a job that includes gaining recognised qualifications and essential skills whilst you are working and earning a wage via a combination of on and off the job learning and development.

The learning and development lets apprentices get the relevant skills and experience needed for the motor industry.

During the Nissan Apprenticeship you will achieve an advanced (level 3) apprenticeship.

APPRENTICESHIP FRAMEWORK

The apprenticeship framework consists of:

  • Vocational Competence Qualification (VCQ) is a nationally-recognised vocational qualifications that demonstrates, to a national standard, competency in the workplace. Competence qualifications are practically-based and, to establish skill and proficiency, are assessed in the workplace across a range of tasks.
  • Vocationally Recognised Qualifications (VRQ) focus on formal exams and testing, a VRQ looks at how you work on a day-to-day basis during the programme and highlights your achievements during the course.
  • Functional Skills are qualifications in English and Maths that equip learners with the practical skills needed to live, learn and work successfully.
  • ERR – Employee Rights and Responsibilities. In this part of the Apprenticeship you will learn about your rights and responsibilities in the workplace.
  • PLTS – Personal Learning and Thinking Skills. As part of the Apprenticeship you will develop a series of underpinning skills that employers are looking for. Skills such as creative thinking, evaluation and team working are key to future employability.
