As an apprentice with DAC Beachcroft you will be on your way to a career in your chosen area and have a real alternative to university. You will earn a salary and have no university fees to pay.
You won’t be thrown in at the deep end; your training will be carefully planned and you will work in a supportive team environment but will be doing a real job and contributing to the DAC Beachcroft business.
Your work and studies will be complemented by our business skills development programme which supports your own professional and personal development.
The apprenticeship will include:
- A knowledge-based “technical certificate” - tested through an exam
- A skills-based qualification - tested through workplace assessment
- Functional skills elements (ICT, Maths and English) if required - tested through exams (depending upon your GCSE grades you may be eligible to apply for exemption from the functional skills element).
Learning will be delivered via a combination of:
- Online learning
- Face to face sessions
- On-the-job training
If you are looking to join us as an apprentice, you will find that we offer an experience that will help to broaden your horizons. Being part of the DAC Beachcroft team means that you will have various peers at a similar level who will be able to support you and help you to grow your network and skills. We have a wealth of resources and technology as well as state-of-the-art working spaces, and are committed to developing and enabling our people to be the very best that they can.
Whilst studying you will be supported by a personal tutor and apprentice student manager and at work, you will be assigned an on-the-job supervisor. They will work together to support you and monitor your progress and ensure you receive the required training. All of your studies will be paid for by DAC Beachcroft. You will have allocated time to study and attend classes at BPP and you will also be given time off for exams.
