Apprenticeships with Middlesbrough Council

Apprenticeships combine studying with practical training in a job. As an apprentice you’ll work alongside experienced staff, gain job-specific skills, earn a wage, get holiday pay, and study towards a related qualification.

Our apprenticeships

Middlesbrough Community Learning offers two levels of apprenticeships - intermediate (level 2) and advanced (level 3).

What's involved

Competence/knowledge qualification - shows you have both the necessary skill (e.g. customer service), and also the knowledge behind the skills (e.g. why good customer service is important)

Functional skills - shows you have the maths, English and ICT skills needed in our everyday lives

All apprentices take a maths and English test before starting their training programme.

Who are apprenticeships for?

  • Anyone aged 16 and over, subject to eligibility
  • Apprentices must be employed for a minimum of 30 hours per week.

The training agreement

An employer must enter into an agreement with Middlesbrough Community Learning and the apprentice, confirming their commitment to the apprentice and their programme of learning.

Assessment

An apprentice will regularly attend the training centre to achieve the knowledge requirement of their programme. Apprentices are also observed in their workplace so staff can confirm they have the correct skills and knowledge. This forms an integral part of the apprenticeship qualification.

Progress review visits/monitoring

Review visits will be carried out on a regular basis to monitor progress, set personal goals and targets, and offer support.

Other visits

Representatives from the Skills Funding Agency or OFSTED may visit during your apprenticeship. Prior notice of all visits will be given.
