This Level 3 Apprenticeship is the entry route for a career in HR. The HR Support Apprenticeship is ideal for those wishing to pursue a career in Human Resources, or wishing to specialise in this field or gain management responsibilities. Anyone interested in this career should expect to learn and regularly apply a host of HR solutions towards various challenges and situations that may occur as well as provide relevant advice to departments within their organisation. This may consist of:
• Delivering front line HR support and guidance to managers and employees
• Dealing with a range of responsibilities from recruitment to retirement

This apprenticeship will therefore give you good experience in the various HR disciplines and relevant legislation and policies, as well as various ways to link the work that you do towards the priorities of the business in order to develop or introduce best practices to the organisation. There are also excellent opportunities available for progression within this sector due to HR being an integral part of every business.
- Entry Requirements
4 x GCSE A*-D / 9-3 including GCSE English at A*-C / 9-4 and Maths at A*-D / 9-3 or equivalent.
Please note that employers may stipulate higher entry requirements than those listed and should therefore be treated as the minimum entry criteria. However, if you do not currently meet the entry requirements for the apprenticeship you wish to apply for, you may also be considered based on related subject qualifications and/or life/work experience or upon successfully achieving the required Basic and Key Skill Builder (BKSB) results.
Should you not hold GCSE English at A*-C / 9-4 and / or Maths at A*-D / 9-3 or equivalent you may have the opportunity to complete a functional skills course alongside your apprenticeship. Suitability will be determined following an initial assessment and diagnostic. Your programme duration may be extended to allow for functional skills.
All information correct at the time of publication but could be subject to change.
- How will I be assessed?
Candidates will build a portfolio of evidence containing examples of work-based evidence, observations and written work. Each candidate will be allocated a qualified work-based assessor who will assess the candidate’s practical skills and competence in the workplace.
- Employer Requirements
Employers must be prepared to work with their Apprentice to develop their knowledge and skills by providing a wide range of learning and training opportunities. They must also be prepared to allow them to attend College sessions at the agreed times. Employers are also expected to encourage Apprentices to research their chosen vocation and to support any work experience that will benefit the Apprentice.
- Progression Pathway
Level 5 progression for CIPD as an adult learner.
- Attendance & Support
Runshaw College believes that attendance and punctuality are key factors in the timely success of an apprenticeship. Apprentices are accepted on the basis that they will have a high level of attendance at college (if applicable) and in the workplace. Persistent or regular absenteeism is a disciplinary offence and may lead to dismissal from the programme.
Runshaw apprentices will be offered support and be encouraged to develop the ability to work on their own and as team players. We expect our apprentices to show enthusiasm and the motivation to reach and exceed their goals.
It is important to maintain time keeping and attendance for both college (if applicable) and workplace sessions to ensure learners remain on target.
