English and Maths

To do an Apprenticehips you will need to have a minimum Grade 4 in GCSE English and maths or a willingness to improve your English and maths skills and you will undertake an initial assessment in maths and English to determine the level you are at. If you don’t already have a grade 4 in English and Maths when you start your Apprenticeship, we will put a personalised study programme together for you that will fit alongside your Apprenticeship which will help you to achieve these vital qualifications.
