  • Overview

    This Level 3 Apprenticeship is the entry route for a career in HR. The HR Support Apprenticeship is ideal for those wishing to pursue a career in Human Resources, or wishing to specialise in this field or gain management responsibilities. Anyone interested in this career should expect to learn and regularly apply a host of HR solutions towards various challenges and situations that may occur as well as provide relevant advice to departments within their organisation. This may consist of:

    • Delivering front line HR support and guidance to managers and employees

    • Dealing with a range of responsibilities from recruitment to retirement

    • Changes in policy, law or legal risks

    This apprenticeship will therefore give you good experience in the various HR disciplines and relevant legislation and policies, as well as various ways to link the work that you do towards the priorities of the business in order to develop or introduce best practices to the organisation. There are also excellent opportunities available for progression within this sector due to HR being an integral part of every business.

  • Entry Requirements

    4 x GCSE A*-D/  9-3 including Maths and English or equivalent. Basic computer skills (not a qualification).

    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.
