About Apprenticeships

An apprenticeship is a practical training programme designed for practitioners across professions which allow them to gain on-the-job training while studying. The practitioner earns a

certificate or license by the end of their programme, after duly completing all the requisites. Apprenticeship fits perfectly in the terminology of a ‘Learn & Earn’ opportunity with a minimum requirement of 30 hours of employment requirements for each week, just like any regular employee would have. The apprentice also enjoys all employment benefits of paid holidays, employment contracts, and fair compensation for learning hours at the apprenticeship’s premises. Most employers pay above the minimum wage to all apprentices.

 

Become an Apprentice

Apprenticeship helps you get paid while you earn so that your employment is not hampered in the process of knowledge advancement. Through your apprenticeship with LCMT, you will have the benefit of off-the-job training, a contract of employment, and holiday leaves. We also ensure you are fully equipped with the necessary information and abilities required to pursue your desired career by the end of your programme.

The apprenticeship comes with several benefits, one of them being the ability to participate in practical work which pays you, just like a regular job. You not only learn through this work experience, but you also get off-the-job training that helps in undertaking training away from the workplace and receiving high-end training. This training gives you a better insight into your chosen career path and broadens the knowledge to explore more options.

 

How do Apprenticeships work?

Apprenticeship standards emphasize building relevant skills and advancing the existing knowledge of the learners while building a behavioral talent that’s required to have an edge in jobs. Some of our programmes come with additional qualifications associated with the profession a particular learner is pursuing to help them gain an advantage of a diverse education. English and Maths come as a requisite for completing an apprentice programme.

All apprenticeships support you to complete these during your course and the apprentice learns through daily tutorials led by industry experts and trainers. LCMT encourages the learner to participate in progress review meetings conducted once every eight weeks. These meetings are set alongside the respective Line manager so that constant support and maximum support and mentorship can be drawn.

 

End-Point Assessments

As the learner approaches the end of the programme, the Skills trainer and Line manager present an End-Point Assessment (EPA). This test measures the skills and knowledge gained through the apprenticeship and determines whether the student has sourced all the skills, knowledge, and experience as aimed at the beginning of the programme. These assessments are developed by employers and conducted by EPAOs (End-Point Assessment Organizations).

 

To be an apprentice, you must;

  • Be a UK/EU resident for the last three years
  • Not hold any qualification higher than the apprenticeship that you’re applying for
  • Not have any degree/study programme simultaneous to the apprenticeship
  • Comply with the employer’s criteria for apprenticeship

Apprenticeships are the best for someone who:

  • Understand their career path and requirements
  • Dedicated towards betterment – can manage work and study
    Competent to work with an employer
  • Can effectively accomplish tasks with the increasing demand of time and efficiency by employers
  • Intelligently completes written assessments such as essays, reports, end tests, and examinations.
