An Intermediate Level Apprenticeship is equivalent to 5 GCSEs grade A*-C and is the most popular level of apprenticeship, with 220,400 new starts in the year 2015 – 2016. Its primary purpose and design is to equip you with the experience and skills to thrive in the world of work.

To be accepted onto an Intermediate Level Apprenticeship you must be enthusiastic, eager to learn, and possess GCSE qualifications in English and Maths. If you don’t have these GCSE qualifications you will need to sit numeracy and literacy tests prior to enrolment which will enable us to help you to get to the level needed for a successful apprenticeship. If you’re not quite ready for that step in terms of your English and Maths it may be necessary for you to enrol onto a Traineeship which will give you the transferable experience and skills needed to begin your Intermediate Level Apprenticeship.

Throughout an Intermediate Level Apprenticeship, you will spend your time working for an employer, shadowing a skilled expert and learning on the job. In addition to this, you will be assigned a Trainer Assessor who will monitor your progress against specific tasks you have to complete to successfully achieve your qualification.

The vocational qualifications which you will undertake will be relevant to the industry in which you are working. Upon completion, you will receive a Level 2 Competence Qualification, a Functional Skills Qualification and a relevant knowledge based qualification. After gaining these qualifications, you will be eligible to enrol onto an Advanced Level Apprenticeship if desired, and then further to a Higher Level Apprenticeship and beyond.

Here at Interserve Learning & Employment we provide apprenticeships in a range of different industries and in many locations throughout the UK. View our vacancies or contact us to enquire about your next steps!
