Apprenticeships Standards

Elev8 Training specialise in finding the right apprenticeships for you or your employees. With a wide range of apprenticeships to choose from you will be able to find just the right skills you need to improve your staff or increase your employability.

All our apprenticeships are supported by our team of dedicated trainers and support staff. You will be fully supported during your apprenticeships and will have expert guidance throughout.

Apprenticeship standards are employer-led, meaning that employers can specify exactly what's required from an apprentice in each specific role.

Apprenticeship standards outline the skills, knowledge and behaviours (KSBs) required to carry out a certain job role. All apprentices must take an independent assessment at the end of their training to demonstrate the KSBs set out in the occupational standard.

Most apprenticeship standards don’t include mandatory qualifications, so employers and training providers can deliver teaching and learning in any way they wish. However, by continuing to offer qualifications, employers and training providers are able to implement a sound structure for delivery and ensure that apprentices achieve high-quality, transferable outcomes.
