At Protocol Consultancy Services, we offer a wide range of fully-funded apprenticeships that will allow you to improve your skills in any given field and make yourself invaluable to any business.
Apprenticeship standards outline the skills, knowledge and behaviours (KSBs) required to carry out a certain job role. All apprentices must take an independent assessment at the end of their training to demonstrate the KSBs set out in the occupational standard.
Most apprenticeship standards don’t include mandatory qualifications, so employers and training providers can deliver teaching and learning in any way they wish. However, by continuing to offer qualifications, employers and training providers are able to implement a sound structure for delivery and ensure that apprentices achieve high-quality, transferable outcomes.
All Apprenticeships include the following elements:
- Technical Knowledge: required to demonstrate achievement of the technical skills, knowledge and understanding of theoretical concepts and knowledge and understanding of the industry and its market relevant to the skill, trade or occupation to which the framework relates. Sometimes an Apprenticeship framework may have an integrated qualification which combines competence and technical knowledge elements in which each element is separately assessed.
- Competency: required for the apprentice to demonstrate competence in performing the skill, trade or occupation to which the framework relates. The competency elements must be performed within the workplace through a variety of assessment methods.
- A module on employee responsibilities and rights
- A module on personal learning and thinking skills
- An apprentice will have to complete Functional Skills (e.g. Maths and English) qualifications or a GCSE with enhanced content (e.g. Maths and English).
- The recommended time frame for completion of the framework/Standard for an Apprenticeship is 12 months, and the Advanced and higher Apprenticeships between 12-24 months.
