Work based Apprenticeships/ Standards - Guidance

Work based Apprenticeships/Standards

As an employee, an apprentice earns a wage and works alongside your experienced staff to gain job-specific skills. Off the job, an apprentice receives training to work towards nationally recognised qualifications. An Apprenticeships/Standard can take between 13-18 months months to complete depending on the level and type of Apprenticeship, the apprentices’ skills and ability and the HSC/CYPW&FP/CWP&FP sector.

As apprentices/Standards are work-based training programmes, the training is ‘on the job’ – at your company settings.
