Apprentices

Who is The Apprentice and Training Partnership (The ATP)?

The ATP is an Apprenticeship Provider that works with large organisations across the Corporate and Public sectors. We specialise in Technology, Analysis, Project and Leadership apprenticeships so that we can deliver excellence in these specific areas.

 

We provide first-class apprenticeship opportunities and training whether you are seeking to launch your career in one of these specialist areas or improve your skills and scope of opportunity within an existing position.

What is an apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is industry designed, training delivered as a collaboration between your employer and the Training Provider comprising of on-the-job and off-the-job training over a set period of time. On completion you achieve a nationally recognised vocational qualification along with other qualifications, certifications and even additional English, Maths and ICT where it is beneficial or needed.

For more information on the delivery and assessment of your chosen apprenticeship career, please visit the ‘Apprenticeships’ section.

How much can I get paid?

One of the main benefits of choosing an apprenticeship is that you get paid whilst working towards your qualifications. The amount you get paid can depend on your age, existing qualifications, and employer but as a good guide apprentices typically earn between the National Minimum or Living Wages set by the Government. Remember it is a training opportunity first and foremost and if you are earning under £11,850 per annum, you don’t pay any income tax on your wages!

Will my salary change if I am already employed and take an apprenticeship to improve my skills?

We provide apprenticeships to numerous existing employees who are using apprenticeships as a means of upskilling. In every instance taking an apprenticeship has not affected the employee’s remuneration.

How is the training delivered?

You will be assigned a dedicated Tutor who will typically deliver your training on a ‘blended learning’ basis. The ‘blend’ comprises of learning in the workplace, live lessons delivered face-to-face and over the internet using specialist live lecture software. Your Tutor will also provide you with numerous training resources. The training provider will work closely with you to provide the best approach for your job and individual learning style. The Tutor will meet you face-to-face typically every 4-6 weeks to help ensure you are on track for completing your assessments.

How long does an apprenticeship take?

The apprenticeships we deliver can take as little as one year or can run for up to four years if you were to complete a Level 3 and Level 4 apprenticeship back-to-back! Each apprenticeship duration is set to provide the greatest career benefit to you along with considering the needs of your employer. The duration is agreed with you before you start.

What do the apprenticeship levels mean?

Apprenticeships come in different levels. Your chosen career path and previous qualifications or training you have received can determine which level of apprenticeship you take. Many employers offer progression from one level to another. Level 3 Advanced apprenticeship = 2-3 A Levels Level 4 Higher apprenticeship = HNC or Diploma / First Year Bachelor’s Degree Level 5 = Second Year Bachelor’s Degree Level 6 = Bachelor’s Degree with Honours as part of our service we assess and ensure that you are placed on the right level of apprenticeship to suit you.

Who can do an apprenticeship?

You have to be over 16 years of age and have eligibility to live and work in the UK. There is no upper age limit. You have been resident legally within the EU for a minimum of 3 years.

How does the application process work?

If you see an ATP position advertised that you like, simply apply by sending your CV along with a few comments as to why you are interested in the position or you can click here and send an application and apprenticeships you are interested in and a member of the team will contact you if there is a suitable opportunity. An ATP consultant will contact you and provide you with comprehensive information regarding the job description, career opportunity and working environment. You will receive information, advice and guidance wherever you need it in areas such as CV preparation, application form completion, and interview preparation for each application made. If there are other suitable opportunities available we will notify you of them to ensure you don’t miss any other suitable positions. You will attend interviews with employers and if you are successful then they will make offers of employment to you. You can then make your decision and go from there… Throughout the recruitment process, you will be kept up to date with developments in your application status. Whilst good news is great, we also provide helpful feedback in instances where job applications were not successful.

What about the application process if I am already employed?

The first port of call is to speak to your employer, typically it would be a member of your company’s Learning and Development or HR team. If you have seen an apprenticeship on our website that you like the look of please feel free to contact us and we would be happy to help and advise you and/or your employer.

Level 4 Associate Project Manager Learner, Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust

I am really enjoying the course and I actually love it! People think there is a lot to learn but it’s really enjoyable. The beauty of this is you do it when at work and it is flexible, the people are also so helpful! I couldn’t ask for better people to help support me. I get so much opportunity for work shadowing that I am learning how the theory is applied to real life.

Vocational Apprenticeship Centre Manager, Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust

I have been particularly happy with the relationship that has been built through constant communication and support from ATP staff. Successful outcomes are dependent on a good relationship between apprentice, employer and provider so we really value the commitment the ATP has put in to develop this excellent working relationship.
This collaborative style of working has extended to our own apprenticeship provision, with the ATP acting very much as a critical friend offering advice and guidance for our development team even when the advisory input does not directly help to further their reach with their own programmes.
