Learner information

Apprenticeships are work based training programmes. They can be undertaken at any age, from school leaver to retirement, and are available both to new employees and existing staff members. Apprenticeships range from GCSE to degree and master's level.

Apprenticeships cover hundreds of work roles, so there's sure to be one that covers your area of interest.

Which apprenticeship programmes does Hoople offer?

How do apprenticeships work?

  • You will be employed for a minimum of 30 hours per week for at least one year
  • You will be paid at least the National Minimum Wage for apprentices (set at £3.50 per hour from April 2017)
  • Your training doesn't cost you anything as it is provided by Government and via a contribution from your employer (where applicable)
  • As well as on-the-job training, you will spend time off-the-job, taking part in classroom based actvities, research, individual learning exercises or personal reflection. This time will be allowed for within your Contract of Employment with your employer
  • You will  be visited at work on a regular basis by your assessor
  • If you are a newly employed apprentice, at the end of your apprenticeship programme you are not guaranteed a job, but many employers do choose to keep on their apprentices
