Facilities Management Apprenticeship Level 2 at Warwickshire College Group

Course description

Apprenticeships are a vocational training programme leading to a series of qualifications, offering the opportunity to earn while you learn using real working life experience.  To become an apprentice you must be employed in a suitable position.

Course content

Work Based Learning Element - Certificate in Facilities Services Level 2.  This is a work based qualification that you will complete in your work place.  An assessor will be assigned to help you select the modules which best fit with your work and will visit you regularly to help you compile a portfolio of evidence to show your competence.  As the Certificate is tailored to the individual, the time taken to complete your portfolio will depend on how quickly you collect the evidence.  Normally this would take a minimum of 12-15 months to complete.

College Element - Knowledge and Functional Skills. There may be some College attendance in order to support you as an individual through the knowledge elements of your framework and also assist you to complete your functional skills.  Each apprentice will be provided with an individual plan which will be discussed with you and your employer and your timetable will be designed around your specific needs.  You will cover topics including:

 Employee rights and responsibilities
Principles of Facility Services Management
Promote and maintain Service Delivery
Reduce risks to health and safety in the workplace 

Entry requirements

Full time employment in a suitable position

Employers who recruit via the College are usually looking for candidates with good GCSE grades.  However, attitude, flexibility and a willingness to learn and progress through the apprenticeship programme are important too. 

Apprenticeships are currently not available to those who have a degree, HNC, HND or equivalent level 4 qualification. 

Please contact us for any advice if you are unsure. 

Assessment

Assessment is a combination of portfolio evidence and online and written testing, supported by your assessor, tutor, Work Based Learning Manager and employer.

Future opportunities

On successful completion of the Intermediate Apprenticeship programme, you will be given advice and guidance about opportunities for further study.  Progression to an Advance Apprenticeship is possible if your job role is suitable.
