Our apprenticeships offer
Our products and services are modular and can be crafted and personalised to your business. The partnership we provide will enable you to introduce apprenticeships for the first time or smoothly navigate the transition from frameworks to standards - making the most of your levy payment.
How we can help
Our qualifications and learning content are designed to engage and inspire apprentices.
Our expertise is in developing content for job-focused learning contexts, from learners taking our vocational BTEC qualifications to degree apprentices studying at Pearson College.
Our end-point assessment (EPA) service embeds planning and dedicated support from the start.
We put EPA at the heart of apprenticeship planning, embedding regular touchpoints with employers and training providers to ensure apprentices are fully prepared for EPA.
Apprenticeships guidance and information
There’s a lot to understand and many choices to make about what’s right for your organisation. We’ve developed an extensive range of advice and guidance content to support you in planning, designing, implementing and delivering successful apprenticeship programmes.
Understanding government reforms and the opportunities they provide for employers in the new world of apprenticeships is the first step toward making your programme a reality. It’s important to make informed decisions about training providers, the types of apprenticeships you introduce and how you recruit apprentices.
The levy means many employers pay into a fund to be used for apprenticeships training and assessment. Understanding how the funding works, the system that supports it and how it integrates with organisation's finance functions is another key step on your apprenticeships journey.
The design and implementation of the on-programme training phase of apprenticeships is crucial to apprentices successfully acquiring the knowledge, skills and behaviours set out in apprenticeship standards. Well-supported apprentices, working through a carefully designed programme of both on and off-the-job training will become valuable assets to your workforce.
Assessment of apprentices having the knowledge, skills and behaviours set out in the apprenticeship standard is the final hurdle to qualified and competent employees entering your workforce. Working with an end-point assessment organisation (EPAO) like Pearson to plan assessment from early on in the apprenticeship will help your apprentices be ready to undertake EPA with confidence.
