Contrary to popular belief, apprenticeships are now no longer accessible just for school leavers. This is reflected in the varying levels of qualifications that can be achieved through an apprenticeship, which may require previous experience or qualifications.
Understanding apprenticeship qualifications
You may have seen apprenticeship qualifications being described through ‘levels’, so here’s a brief description of the different levels and what they mean:
- Level 2 (Intermediate): Equivalent to 5 GCSE’s, Grades A-C
- Level 3 (Advanced): Equivalent to 2 A-Levels
- Level 4 (Higher): Certificate of Higher Education
- Level 5 (Higher): Foundation Degree
Babington provides apprenticeships across a range of industries, covering the various levels. Each specific apprenticeship page offers a breakdown of what qualifications the learner will achieve through completion. We also provide some information on your prospective next steps after gaining the qualification, which could include higher apprenticeship levels or viable career paths.
