How does the apprenticeship work?
Apprentices are in full time qualifying employment whilst undertaking this twoyear apprenticeship. An apprentice has the advantage of being able to quickly utilise knowledge and skills acquired during their studies within the workplace for the benefit of clients and colleagues and their own professional development.
How is the apprenticeship structured?
The apprenticeship is delivered over two years. The teaching element of the apprenticeship takes place during the first year, divided across two 12-week semesters during which apprentices undertake three level 6 modules. This is either on a day / half day release basis, or attending study in the late afternoon on one or two days per week.. The second year culminates in an end point assessment (EPA), for which the university
provides supervision and support during the second year in readiness for submission.
What topics does the apprenticeship cover?
- Client Care Skills
- Civil Litigation
How is the apprenticeship assessed?
In the first year of the apprenticeship, Client Care Skills is assessed by way of a combination of coursework and a presentation whilst Civil Litigation and Conveyancing are assessed by way of an examination.
Where will study take place?
Study takes place on campus at the university, most likely at City Campus. Supervision meetings will generally be held on campus. There will also be some work place visits during the apprenticeship.
Every apprenticeship must have an Apprenticeship Agreement. This is a contract of service between the apprentice and the employer, confirming the apprenticeship and the standard being undertaken. This will be supplemented by a ‘Statement of Commitment’ signed by the employer, university and apprentice, setting out the expectations, roles and responsibility of each party involved in the apprenticeship.
- Apprentices must be employed and paid at least a minimum wage appropriate to their age and job role.
- You will be responsible for the recruitment of apprentices. However, we can work with you to promote your opportunities via our website.
- You pay apprentices at their normal rate whilst they are studying.
- Apprentices require a workplace mentor who will oversee their development and coordinate projects and learning with the university tutor.
