Entry requirements

A rigorous recruitment and selection process is carried out to ensure that the aspiring apprentices are suited to enduring this exciting and challenging route of study. GCSE grade A-C in English and Maths would be an advantage.

However if you cannot provide evidence of this then you will be required to sit an online assessment test.


Individual employers will identify entry requirements in terms of previous qualifications, training or other criteria. Most candidates will have Level 2 Maths and English (equivalent to GCSE grade 4/5 or C or above), ideally as part of 5 GCSE A-C grades or other comparable qualifications.

Apprentices without English or Maths at Level 2 must achieve this prior to the completion of the apprenticeship
