Regardless of age or prior attainment, anyone can do an apprenticeship provided they’re learning new skills and are employed in England, in a relevant role. Kaplan will support you to assess the job role suitability as part of your application.
To do this apprenticeship employers may specify that candidates must have at least a grade 4/C GCSE (or equivalent) in Maths and English. If apprentices don’t have this level of Maths and English, Kaplan offers free resources and support to make sure they develop their understanding of the subjects and application by the end of their apprenticeship.
Apprentices typically have one of the following:
- GCSE or other Level 2 qualification
- 12 months of work experience in the last 24 months if they do not have any other Level 3 qualifications
We advise that apprentices on this programme must be in a full-time IT support role where problem solving, troubleshooting, and rectifying a range of IT and network problems for customers is the primary focus of their work activities.
