The Skills Network offers individualised learning to each Apprentice and heavily involves the employer with all curriculum scoping to ensure progress is meaningful. Alongside this, prior attainment is carefully considered from the start to ensure time on programme is maximised.
We have the ability to individualise every Apprentices scheme of work to produce a bespoke delivery plan tailored around the individuals need by incorporating content from our e-learning catalogue giving a more enhanced Apprenticeship and experience for the Apprentice.
The Skills Network's strong IAG ensures that each Apprentice understands the context of their learning, the assessment methodology and that their future career progression is carefully mapped into their journey.
In addition, the curriculum scoping exercise provides an opportunity to review prior learning and completed qualifications, with the aim of personalising Apprenticeships to support and enhance your business, and therefore your Apprentices’ progress and progression.
Individual employers may set any entry requirements which may include:
- It is desirable that candidates would have achieved a level 2 in Maths and English (equivalent to GCSE Grade C or above) prior to commencing their Apprenticeship training.

However, a level 2 must be achieved in these areas before they qualify for entry to their End Point Assessment (EPA).
