Please note that employers may stipulate higher entry requirements than those listed and should therefore be treated as the minimum entry criteria. However, if you do not currently meet the entry requirements for the apprenticeship you wish to apply for, you may also be considered based on related subject qualifications and/or life/work experience or upon successfully achieving the required Basic and Key Skill Builder (BKSB) results.
Should you meet entry requirements but not hold a level 4/C in English and/or Maths you will need to complete a functional skills course alongside your apprenticeship. As part of the application process you will be assessed to see your current working level, acceptance will be based on this outcome. Your programme duration may be extended to allow for functional skills.
All information correct at the time of publication but could be subject to change.

- Employer Requirements
Employers must be prepared to work with their Apprentice to develop their knowledge and skills by providing a wide range of learning and training opportunities. They must also be prepared to allow them to attend College sessions at the agreed times. Employers are also expected to encourage Apprentices to research their chosen vocation and to support any work experience that will benefit the Apprentice.
- Progression Pathway
Dependent on job role and experience, progression could be to:
- Advanced Apprenticeship in Business Administration at Level 3.
- Advanced Customer Service Apprenticeship at Level 3.
- Attendance & Support
Runshaw College believes that attendance and punctuality are key factors in the timely success of an Apprenticeship. Apprentices are accepted on the basis that they will have a high level of attendance at College and in the workplace. Persistent or regular absenteeism is a disciplinary offence and may lead to dismissal from the programme.
Runshaw Apprentices will be offered support and be encouraged to develop the ability to work on their own and as team players. We expect our Apprentices to show enthusiasm and the motivation to reach and exceed their goals.
It is important to maintain time keeping and attendance for both college and work place sessions to ensure learners remain on target.
