All about apprenticeships

Common misconceptions are that apprenticeships are just for manual, field-based roles, and for entry-level staff, usually just out of school or college – but that’s just not the case anymore.

Apprenticeships are work-based training schemes that combine work with study and result in a programme which is truly business-focussed.

You can use apprenticeships to support new employees, or people already in your business when they move into new roles

Apprenticeships are a great way to develop the skills your business needs

The technical and professional disciplines on offer range from entry-levy qualifications all the way through to degree-level.

New employer-designed standards mean that organisations can implement a programme that really fits the roles in their business

We provide apprenticeship training from entry level to degree level across 15 different subjects

Our programmes are helping clients to attract and retain talent, professionalise the workforce and migrate existing L&D activity to apprenticeship programmes.

We can

Deliver bespoke programmes that suit your business needs in both subjects and qualifications offered

Work with you to ensure apprentices complete their programme within the required timescales and in line with national standards

Source, train, place and support apprentices joining your business, including securing funding

Capita Apprenticeships Key Facts

Apprentices hold real jobs in your business, and spend the vast majority of their time carrying out their mainstream duties

Apprenticeship standards may include a qualification but this is not a mandatory requirement unless specifically written into the criteria

An apprenticeship takes a minimum of 12 months to complete based on individual needs and depending on the subject and attainment level

Apprentices build their skills and competence through a combination of learning activities, on and off the job
