How can we help you?
Here at NBC we take your privacy seriously and will only use your personal information to administer your enquiry and to provide the services you have requested from us. We will never pass your details on to any 3rd party organisations without your authority.
How long will it take to complete?
Your apprenticeship can take between one and three years to complete, depending on which apprenticeship pathway you follow, what level it’s at, and your previous experience. Throughout your apprenticeship you will be supported by your Trainer who will work with you and your employer to devise a programme of learning to enable you to gain the skills, knowledge and behaviours you need to be assessed as competent. All of our apprenticeships have an end-point assessment, which will test you at the end of the apprenticeship to make sure you are fully competent in your apprenticeship standard.
What happens after I finish my apprenticeship?
The vast majority of apprentices are offered a permanent role during or at the end of their apprenticeship. The apprenticeship is only the first step and you can progress on to higher levels and management apprenticeships depending on your chosen pathway.
