Apprentice FAQ

An apprenticeship is a job with a mix of hands-on experience and on-the-job training. You get a salary, contract, and holiday, with the added benefit of learning real-world skills.

On an apprenticeship, you work towards a nationally recognised qualification, whilst also receiving professional training from experts within the marketing industry.

  • You’ll be paid a salary whilst learning;
  • You gain nationally-recognised qualifications;
  • You will receive hands-on experience and training from marketing experts;
  • You’re employment ready you’re complete;
  • Apprenticeships open the door for future courses and experience.

No, there are no costs for you to start an apprenticeship. Not only are there no costs to gaining your apprenticeship qualification, but you won’t have to pay for your CIM or MRS either!

Our apprenticeships last anywhere between 13 to 18 months.

You need to be aged 16-64 years old and have left full-time education.

Unfortunately, we wouldn’t be able to enrol you on any of our programmes unless you live in England. Scotland and Wales have their own apprenticeship schemes and although they’re very similar, we’re not registered as a provider within those regions :(…. Yet….

If you’re living in the UK and either have full permission to reside here or have a working visa which would be sufficient in length to complete the apprenticeship, you can enrol. Otherwise we wouldn’t be able to assist you.

Training is completed online using a mix of our proprietary learning management system and Microsoft Teams.

How much you will get paid heavily depends on your employer. The apprentice minimum wage is currently £5.28 an hour.

An apprentice has to work between 30 – 40 hours per week. Generally, you will work 37.5 hours, 9-5 but this can fluctuate.

Yes, as long as your degree is not directly related to the apprenticeship. In our case for example, if you have completed a degree in marketing, you cannot then complete one of our marketing apprenticeships as you’ll already be educated above apprenticeship level.

You will receive a minimum of 20 days of paid holiday per year, plus bank holidays. However, it will differ from employers and you may get more.

Once you have completed your apprenticeship, there are a few opportunities available to you, such as:

  • Your employer may offer you a full-time position;
  • Your employer may want you to progress onto further training;
  • You may want to move to another employer.

If you are having personal problems, we would recommend you go to one of the following people:

  1. Your line manager;
  2. Your Development Coach;
  3. One of our designated Safeguarding Officers.

English and maths are a crucial part of your learning and development. In order to make sure that you are working at the highest level, we ask all learners to sit assessments in both English and maths in order to make sure that you’re working at Level 2 or GCSE equivalent ability. All of our apprenticeships require a minimum or Level 2. We appreciate that you may have previous qualifications such as GCSEs or higher, but the initial assessments ensure that gaps in learning or required revision can be addressed alongside your apprenticeship and that you can continue to thrive in your holistic approach to learning.

If you don’t have your GCSE certificates then you still have a few options to provide evidence of your results;

1. We will check Learner Records Service (LRS) as they may be logged here;

2. If we’re unable to find them on LRS you can reach out to the awarding bodies to gain reprints. This usually costs £50 per certificate. You will only require Maths and English for a level 3 or 4 apprenticeships.
