Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes designed around the needs of employers. These lead to national recognised qualifications. They are an excellent way for your business to develop key skills within your workforce.

All Apprenticeships include the following elements:

  • An appropriate competency qualification to at least Level 2 of the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF);
  • Essential Skills Wales qualifications, e.g. communication, application of number
  • A technical qualification such as a BTEC or City & Guilds (relevant to the specific Apprenticeship);

Other qualifications or requirements as specified by the particular occupation.

Who are they for?

Apprenticeships are available to any above the age of 16, who are capable of achieving a Level 2 Qualification and who already work in the fitness and leisure industry, so you can take on a new starter or train existing employees. Funding is available towards the cost of training and assessment.
