What's Included

Live Webinar (3-5hrs*)

 

This is the live element of the apprenticeship course. The webinar introduces the key fundamentals that students will have to utilize in order to gain employment as an apprentice.

 

Modules covered:

 

Our expert tutor and moderators use engaging slides, chat communications, and regular Q&A opportunities to ensure that interested students are fully engaged throughout the webinar.

Webinar Workbook (6hrs)

The 80+ pages workbook is posted to students/school in advance of the webinar.

 

During the webinar 

The workbook acts as a reference book for students during the webinar. We understand that some students may find it difficult to focus for extended periods during the webinar. With this in mind, the tutor will regularly reference material in the workbook. 

After the webinar 

After the webinar, the students can use this standalone workbook to reinforce their learning. The workbook contains exercises that help them to incrementally progress towards writing an effective application form, CV, and cover letter. The workbook also guides students on how to prepare for an apprenticeship competency-based interview using a step-by-step process.

The different stages of the recruitment process may be months apart, so students are encouraged to safely store their workbooks until they have successfully gained employment.

All workbooks are printed using 100% recycled paper.

E-Learning Platform (40+ hrs)

Students are provided with 12 months access to our awardwinning e-Learning Platform.

 

Students can view instructional video lessons that will coach them to perform well in psychometric tests. These tests are used by many large organisations to recruit hundreds of apprentices each year. After the lessons, students can practice timed and untimed tests to
get used to the difficulty levels. Finally, there is an in-depth competency-based interview module to help them to prepare for any interview they might have.
