PRE- Apprenticeship

Pre-apprenticeship is a course for learners to gain maths and English qualifications before going onto further education.


The Pre-Apprenticeship course is a 10-week programme which allows learners to gain a Functional Skills qualification at either Level 1 or Level 2, preparing them to progress into further education. The course is typically delivered via online webinars, E-learning and our online learning tool, CenturyTech.


All learners will complete an initial assessment to gauge their performance level, this will inform the chosen level of qualification.

How is it delivered?





Each programme (maths or English) will begin with an initial assessment to assess learner’s skill level. Learning will be delivered via online webinars and E-learning via our partner CenturyTech. The programme spans over 10-weeks with the final exam sat in the last week. If a learner is unsuccessful on their first attempt, additional coaching sessions will be provided before an opportunity to resit.


Our English course includes two written exams (online or paper based) and one oral assessment.
