Develop your organisation with an apprentice

New College Durham works with over 300 employers across the region delivering apprenticeship programmes in a wide range of sectors and roles.

We offer both Level 2 and Level 3 qualifications which both last for approximately two years for each level, during this time the student will work towards their qualification completing a series of examinations and gathering work based evidence.

An apprentice spends four days working with your company gathering valuable experience and evidence as part of their qualification, while making a unique contribution to your organisation. The apprentice will attend college one day a week for practical and theory sessions, which differ depending on the programme they are undertaking.

An appointed NVQ assessor will visit the workplace every 12 weeks to undertake progress reviews, this is to monitor the apprentices progress throughout the qualification to ensure they are meeting tagrets and progressing well in their qualification.
