Description

Apprentices may continue to work as a competent craftsperson in their current job role for the rest of their careers. However, they can also progress horizontally within the sector to complete qualifications or units at the same level relevant to their job role. Where appropriate, progress to higher level qualifications and/or higher-level work within the sector, for example to supervisory and managerial roles.

There are no specific entry requirements for this framework. However, the apprentice MUST be in a job role that supports the completion of the CBQ in the pathway they have chosen to complete and should be assessed as having the ability to complete all components of the framework prior to registration.

How is it funded?

We contribute towards training costs

We do this by paying the learning provider directly in incremental payments throughout the course of the apprenticeship.

See training contribution calculator below to determine funding contribution for this framework.

An enhanced funding contribution is paid for employees who are aged 16 – 19. For those who are disabled and care-experienced, this is extended up to and including age 29.

Speak to a range of learning providers to find the best deal and agree on a flexible approach to meet the needs of your business.

Who pays the apprentice?

Like any other employee of your business, you’ll pay the Modern Apprentice's wages. This is not set by SDS, but we do encourage all employers to pay the living wage. Remember, you must pay at least the National Minimum Wage.

Time to complete

It will take 12-24 months to complete.
