An apprenticeship is a job with an accompanying skills development programme, designed by the company itself. It is a ‘framework’ containing a number of separately certificated qualifications and courses, which cover the skills, competences and underpinning knowledge required for a job. A framework would generally consist of: 1. competence-based element A (e.g. NVQ/Diploma) 2. knowledge-based element or technical A certificate (e.g. BTEC) 3. Functional Skills in Communication, Application of Numbers, Information Technology, Working with Others Improving Own Learning and Performance 4. Employment Rights and Responsibilities There are levels of apprenticeships centred on NVQ levels 2, 3 and 4. The minimum duration of an apprenticeship is one year but it could be longer depending on the needs of the employer and the ability of the individual apprentice. (NAS June 2013) Previous Contact Next

  6. 6. Your commitment At the BiS Henderson Academy, we work hard to find the right candidates for you. In return, we ask you to make a small onward commitment to them, in that you will: • Provide employment relevant to the apprentice’s ability • Allow the opportunity for the apprentices to study a relevant NVQ at Level 2 (as a minimum) • Allow time for them liaise with their tutors and mentors. Assistance available Subject to criteria both central government and regional bodies have funding subsidies available. The BiS Henderson Academy can help you identify and apply for suitable funding To assist you during the training period the government has published national apprentice wage rates Supply chain and logistics must move on As an industry sector we have to move away from simply accepting what ‘The Agency’ sends us, taking what we can from the local labour pool irrespective of its interest in logistics as a career. Giving your future employees a sense of purpose and a career, as opposed to leaving yourself open to high attrition rates and replacement costs, must become the norm. This is an initiative that (if entered into in the spirit of partnership between the employer, the mentor and apprentice) will reduce shrinkage, absenteeism and other negative practices and will set the scene to establish a culture of loyalty, interest in the business and an innate desire for continual improvement.
