Perhaps you are relatively new to your career, or you may even have been in your industry for over 40 years – whether you are pretty green or an old sage, doing an apprenticeship can benefit you. Read on to explore some common myths that surround apprenticeships…

3 myths busted about apprenticeships

 

 

How is the apprenticeship delivered?

 

One of the most common questions we are asked is about the delivery method of apprenticeships, and it’s understandable why! You will complete your apprenticeship over a minimum of 12 months and your training provider may not be local to you. Are you telling me I have to go back to college once a week and sit in a classroom full of strangers? Ugh. Relax – and welcome to the new frontier of apprenticeships. Apprenticeships can now be delivered fully remotely, and apprenticeships delivered by Compass give you the choice, flexibility, and freedom to choose whether you would like to attend any sessions in person or remotely.

 

How often are sessions, what is my schedule going to look like?

Right, down to what you really wanted to know – depending on which apprenticeship you do, your apprenticeship can be made up of workshops, courses, and, of course, assignments set by your tutor. All of these things count towards off the job training.

But what if you think your employer would be reluctant to give you that much time off work? Employers are legally required to give apprentices AT LEAST 6 hours per week dedicated to off the job training. This works out to about a day per week, and many apprentices find this very achievable. This is a great time to catch up with assignments, which you can upload via our online learning portal, and do any other self study or off the job training. Again, courses and workshops also count towards off the job training so you can use these towards your 6 hours per week too.

We offer apprenticeships in:
