Peter Marples, Group CEO of 3aaa, recently spoke with The Guardian to discuss ‘How to find the apprenticeship course for you’ and what you should be looking for in an employer and a training provider.
“When you’ve found an apprenticeship that looks promising, the first thing to consider is the quality of the training on offer, says Peter Marples, group chief executive of training provider 3aaa Apprenticeships. “Does the training provider have any delivery centres? Do they have classrooms where that teaching can take place? Ask them where they are going to deliver the teaching – if it’s the workplace, that’s a big red flag for me.” That could mean the training is simply a box-ticking exercise without adequate depth, he warns. That said, for some jobs, such as healthcare assistant, training while working will be important.
Marples also advises candidates to inquire about the qualifications on offer. Under new rules, apprenticeships are not obliged to offer qualifications at the end.”
