Apprenticeships and NVQs

Apprenticeships are now the major route for people to gain skills and qualifications at work. They are available at different levels.

You can only do an apprenticeship if your employer has signed up to the apprenticeship scheme. Many such as Sainsbury, Tesco, DHL, the Co-op have already done so. If you are not sure whether your employer offers apprenticeships, ask your Usdaw Rep or Union Learning Rep about it.

unionlearn.org.uk has a lot of information on apprenticeships and how they work.

tuc.org.uk gives you an idea of what to negotiate on around apprenticeships in the workplace.

apprenticeships.gov.uk has some advice around apprenticeships and a handy search facility.
