Maybe people are getting confused because from work I’ve heard it’s the same sort of initial training and then you start the job and there’s workbooks and assessments as you work over the next year.

Who knows so confusing!

No confirmed start date for apprenticeship, however both courses offer level 3 qualifications. The current training is 8 weeks including 2 of C&R and 13 workbooks completed during the 8 weeks. When the apprenticeship is rolled out you will still do initial training with additional weeks at stages during your first 12 months. Lots more paper work and workbooks on the apprenticeship.
Whichever course you complete will give you the basics and your real learning will be done upon return to your establishment and stepping onto the Landings.

Hi is anyone on the apprenticeship and done it? I was on diploma but they rang last night and have had to move me to a different place which means I now start on 24th May instead of the 4th 🙄. But he has put me on a apprenticeship and said I need. To pass a level 2 maths and English is it same as the arc tests or harder? I did resit my maths and English at college going to call them today and ask if I can get them to send me my results again it was 10 years ago though. Really panicking about maths and English as hated them at school.

Oh my god how frustrating literally days before you start

Did they say why they have had to change your start date?

I think the level 2 is very similar to what we have already had to complete through the recruitment process. X
