Also known as advanced apprenticeships, apprenticeships at Level 3 are a great place to start if you’re looking for a new opportunity in your career. Whether you’re a learner hoping to begin your career, or an employer seeking to upskill their existing workforce, a Level 3 apprenticeship is the way forward.
There are a wide variety of different apprenticeships available to begin at Level 3, from level 3 IT apprenticeships to marketing apprenticeships. Here at Estio, we specialise in the Digital & Technology industry, and these are the Level 3 apprenticeships we have on offer:
To begin a Level 3 apprenticeship, you will need to be 16 and over and living in England. You shouldn’t be in full-time education, although you can apply whilst you are still in school as long as you aren’t planning to remain there. If you don’t already have GCSEs in maths and English, you’ll generally undergo Functional Skills as part of the apprenticeship and will also need to meet any other criteria set out by the employer. There aren’t any Level 3 UCAS points required, simply an application and the required GCSEs.
A Level 3 advanced apprenticeship will offer you the opportunity to earn and learn at the same time. You will spend most of your time working in a workplace, learning job-specific skills and earning a wage. The rest of your time will be spent with a training provider, helping you to learn the theory and put it into practice. At various points throughout your apprenticeship you’ll be assessed, with a final End Point Assessment at the conclusion.
Estio is a leading provider of digital and technology apprenticeship programmes, offering a comprehensive apprenticeship course informed by industry expertise, and delivered remotely to ensure enough flexibility for your apprentice’s needs to be suited.

Unlike a more advanced level apprenticeship, a Level 3 apprenticeship equivalent is two A Level passes. To be considered for a Level 3 apprenticeship, you will generally need to have completed a Level 2 apprenticeship or passed 5 GCSEs. There may be times you don’t even need a prior qualification, and could simply be sent on the course by your current employer.
This will depend entirely on the course that you study, but a Level 3 apprenticeship will always take a minimum of 12 months. Depending on the frequency of your study, they can even last as long as 2-4 years.
Level 3 apprenticeships are paid. You will earn a real wage for the duration of your programme, and the amount will depend on:
All apprentices will be paid in line with the National Minimum Wage.
