Choose the right apprenticeship for you

Intermediate apprenticeships

Intermediate apprenticeships

 
Intermediate apprenticeships are the entry-level apprenticeship for those looking to make a start in the world of work. Available to anyone from the age of 16, with no maximum age limit, they’re also a great option for anyone looking to make a career change. You’ll need five GCSEs grade A*-E/ 3-9 including Maths and English, as well as a Science subject to apply for an engineering or technical role, or two National 4s including Maths and English (or equivalent).
 
Become a technical expert and learn a specialist skill such as welding, painting, or scaffolding, with a blend of hands-on training and classroom learning. An intermediate apprenticeship is a great way to join our business, with real responsibility working on innovative security products and services.
 
Advanced apprenticeships

Advanced apprenticeships

 
You can apply for one of our advanced apprenticeships if you have five GCSEs or National 4 (or equivalent), including Maths and English, as well as a Science subject to apply for an engineering or technical role, or you’ve completed an intermediate apprenticeship or similar Level 2 qualification. They’re full time roles, with a competitive salary and they’re a great way to develop specialist skills.
 
We have a range of advanced apprenticeships available, including engineering, technical, and business roles. At the end of the apprenticeship you’ll have valuable qualifications equivalent to A Levels, NC, HNC, or HND. With the freedom to explore our business, endless opportunities for development, and with genuine recognition and reward, you’ll build a career to be proud of.
 
Higher apprenticeships

Higher apprenticeships

 
Higher apprenticeships are available to anyone over the age of 18 who is looking for an alternative to attending university. You’ll need at least five GCSEs or National 5 + Highers (or equivalent) including Maths and English, as well as a Science subject to apply for an engineering or technical role. Additionally, you’ll require a minimum of two A levels or a level 3 equivalent qualification.
 
With the chance to forge a high-impact career in engineering, business, or finance, these roles lead to qualifications equivalent to a HND or Foundation Degree.
 
Degree apprenticeships

Degree apprenticeships

 
Degree apprenticeships are great for 18–19 year old school leavers looking to gain a degree while also starting their career journey. It’s the perfect option for those who can’t decide between an apprenticeship and university. They’re also a great option for anyone looking to make a career change. We have a wide range of degree apprenticeships to choose from across the business, and there’s slightly different qualification and UCAS point requirements for each one, taking 3-6 years to complete. You can also apply for a degree apprenticeship if you’ve already successfully completed a lower-level apprenticeship and you’re looking to further your career.
