What are the entry requirements for a Level 4 apprenticeship?

As always, entry requirements for Level 4 apprenticeships will vary depending on the employer and training provider that you apply through. Most Level 4 apprenticeships will require you to have Level 3 qualifications, such as a Level 3 apprenticeship, A Levels, a BTEC or an NVQ. However, you might also be allowed to do an apprenticeship Level 4 if you have relevant experience, or are retraining.

How do Level 4 apprenticeships work?

A Level 4 apprentice will spend time working with their employer and the rest of their time studying toward the qualification. Every apprenticeship is different, and there will be a variety of different projects for you to get involved with depending on the type of apprenticeship and the business you are working for.
