Apprentice Information

The Benefits

Apprenticeships are a great way to learn new skills and gain valuable work experience while also earning a wage. You will work closely with your employer and NSC to learn all about the sector and the day to day tasks that come with working in that industry. You will be able to use your new skills and knowledge to support you through your qualification. You will also learn a wide variety of skills that will assist you in a working environment.

Why Choose NSC for your Apprenticeship?

The College has a dedicated team of highly skilled assessors who focus on encouraging learners’ growth and development within their chosen sector. We provide a quality driven apprenticeship programme where the learner is given the full support and guidance they need to complete their qualification.

Earn While You Learn

All apprentices must receive the appropriate national minimum wage. You’ll be paid during your apprenticeship. The current minimum wage rate for an apprentice is £3.40 per hour. This rate applies to apprentices under 19 and those aged 19 or over who are in their first year. You must be paid at least the minimum wage rate for your age if you're an apprentice aged 19 or over and have completed your first year.

Course Information

The apprenticeships are a minimum of 12 months for a Level 2 and a minimum of 15 months for a Level 3. You will complete the apprenticeship in the work place, with the support of a dedicated assessor. Some apprenticeships may require you to attend college on a regular basis for underpinning knowledge.

Why we use them

When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, your computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.

These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested
  • measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure they are fast
  • analysing anonymised data to help us understand how people interact with our website so we can make them better

You can manage these small files and learn more about them from the article, Internet Browser cookies- what they are and how to manage them
