How does an Apprenticeship work?

Apprenticeships are an effective way of teaching the skills of a particular trade.


Most of our advanced Apprenticeships last at least three years. They are built around three key elements: Knowledge, Skills and Behaviours (KSBs). The knowledge element consists of theory lessons in the classroom, often working towards BTEC Level 3 or HNC Level 4. Skills training is delivered up front in our workshops in your first year before returning to work then reinforced in the workplace alongside your colleagues and mentors. Behaviours are about building skills for work and life, for example: teamwork, problem-solving, building resilience, effective communication, undertaking CPD and so much more. At SETA we develop behaviours through role-modelling, our tutorial programme, the Apprentice Council (our student representation body) and by supporting employers via mentoring training. 


For those without the literacy and numeracy skills expected within the Apprenticeship Standard, we offer Functional Skills in English and Maths as required. These are studied in addition to any Apprenticeship training.
