Why an apprenticeship?  

Apprenticeships offer a practical, well-rounded knowledge of a range of different industries depending on which apprenticeship you choose. It’s a great opportunity to learn new skills that you can apply to different aspects of life. Apprenticeships are also employment opportunities that provide a paid contract of employment and paid holiday leave. 

Not only this, there are many more benefits to an apprenticeship: 

  • Work alongside experienced staff 
  • Gain practical, job-specific skills 
  • Gain important life skills 
  • Earn a wage and get holiday pay 
  • Be allocated time for study related to your role (equivalent to one day a week).

Who can apply for apprenticeships?  

You can apply for an apprenticeship if you are over the age of 16, no longer in full-time education and you are living in the UK.

NCFE is a quality EPA organisation that we work closely with to ensure our learners receive the best service possible for the end- point assessments.

Emma Krupinski, Dental Nurse CDA/Assessor at Training 2000

We would highly recommend NCFE to other centres. We’ve received lots of support from them and training on EPA. The EPA specification and guidance is clear and easy to follow. Great guidance was provided on writing of the reflective account instead of the observation.

Sharon Hanney, Assessor at Wiltshire College

We highly recommend NCFE as an end-point assessment organisation to other providers delivering apprenticeships.
