If you selected 'yes' above, and you are successful in joining the programme, then our Learner Support Executive (Imogen Barker) will be in touch to discuss any adjustments. If you would like to reach out to her directly, then feel free to contact her at


Previous Qualifications & Experience

If you haven't achieved a level 2 qualification in these subjects, to be able to complete this apprenticeship programme you will need to complete a Level 2 Functional Skills qualification. Bauer Academy will assist with this and provide you with further information at enrolment.

If you completed maths and/or English qualifications overseas then we'll need to apply for a statement of comparability, which we can do once we have copies of your certificates. We'll do this through UK ENIC – the UK National Information Centre for the recognition and evaluation of international qualifications and skills.

Rationale for Enrolling

Please review (here) the Apprenticeship Standard 'knowledge, skills and behaviours' which are due to be taught within this programme, before then answering the following questions.


Please note you will be required to provide ID such as a copy of your passport to enrol on this programme

20% Off-the-job Training

Each programme lasts a minimum of 12 months and is blended into your daily job, with 20% of your normal working hours spent on the programme as ‘Dedicated Development Time’ (DDT), so if you apply, you'll need to be committed to learning for this whole period.

Achieving your 20% DDT requires discipline, but there's some flexibility!

DDT includes time spent in workshops, time spent working on assignments or completing resources in the Open Elms e-portfolio system. It also includes any self-guided activity that relates to the apprenticeship standard, which could include shadowing colleagues, attending conferences/webinars, reading books and listening to podcasts, and time you're learning new and relevant skills/knowledge on-the-job. Your Programme Lead will help you keep a record of DDT using a monthly reflective log.
