With government focus on sustainable jobs, apprenticeships are recognised as one of the key areas for employers to invest in their existing and future workforce. An apprenticeship framework is a structured training programme usually undertaken within a working environment. Learners undertaking an apprenticeship use the skills and knowledge gained in order to achieve the qualification relevant to their job role and career objectives. HABC offers individual component qualifications to make up full apprenticeship frameworks across a range of sectors. Apprenticeship frameworks consist of the following 5 components:
- Competence-based qualifications;
- Knowledge-based qualifications;
- Functional Skills;
- Employment Rights and Responsibilities (ERR); and
- Personal Learning and Thinking Skills (PLTS).
Below are just some of the benefits of delivering apprenticeships through HABC.
Excellent Learner Support – All of our intermediate apprenticeship frameworks can be supported by HABC Apprenti-kits. Apprenti-kits are an innovative learner resource that covers the mandatory units of the knowledge-based qualifications within an apprenticeship. These kits include textbooks, workbooks, notes pages and much more. Furthermore, to meet the demand of an ever-evolving market we have developed our eApprenti-Kit, allowing our centres even more flexibility.
