What makes up an apprenticeship?


The Institute for Apprenticeships is working with employers to create and develop new apprenticeship standards. The awarding body will replace all the old apprenticeship frameworks by 2020. As Standards become available, Sigta will implement where they are the preferred option. Until then, we will continuwe with Apprenticeship frameworks incorporating National Vocational Qualifications.


A National Vocational Qualification Diploma (NVQ/QCF) which is a practical workplace based qualification, designed to demonstrate your competence.


A technical knowledge qualification (usually completed at college) which is the qualification required to demonstrate achievement of the technical skills, knowledge

and understanding required for your chosen career.


Key/functional skills - practical skills in English, maths and information and communications technology (ICT).
