    *If you do not currently hold A* – C (9-4) in English or maths

    Training will take place in both your place of work and at Runshaw College in our new £6.5m Science and Engineering Innovation Centre, allowing for access to state of the art Industrial standard facilities and a fantastic environment that will support learning.

  • Entry Requirements

    You will need 5 x GCSE A*-C /Grade 9-4 which must include Maths and Science and GCSE English at Grade A*-D /Grade 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.

    Continual assessment and review through formative and summative assessments during your apprenticeship. These assessment methods may include completion of assignments, workbooks, reflective accounts, discussions, exams and observations.

    Once deemed competent in all areas of the standard the apprentice will then go through independent end point assessment carried out by an external assessor.
