Become an Apprentice

An apprenticeship gets you earning and learning; it combines the invaluable experience of working in a professional environment with the benefits of formal training and earning an internationally renowned qualification.

Ofsted have graded Newham College’s apprenticeship training GOOD, with more apprentices achieving on time than other organisation around the country.

Our full list of apprenticeship frameworks can be found here.

Newham college apprenticeships consist of five key elements:

A competence qualification - You will work towards an NVQ in your chosen discipline normally via guidance given during assessor visits.

A technical qualification - This is typically a theory-based qualification completed at college, one day a week.

Functional Skills – maths, English, ICT.  If you haven’t achieved GCSEs at grades A to C in maths, English and, in some cases, ICT, they you can work towards them as part of your apprenticeship.

Employer Rights and Responsibilities (ERR) - assessors will work with you to ensure that you have an understanding of employment rights and responsibilities.

Personal Learning and Thinking Skills (PLTS) - you will be supported to aid learning and help you manage time efficiently.
