Apprenticeship and Training Support Courses

Apprentice and Training Support Courses Online

Online Apprenticeship and Staff Training Programmes With Endorsed Courses And Certificates Issued By An Ofqual Recognised Awarding Organisation

The courses in this section are designed to support the practical aspect of a trade being learned by apprentices or new staff members in different fields, with the theory principles. They are written, regularly updated and delivered by industry relevant professionals via distance learning, with the needs of employers in mind. They are therefore a credible alternative to government regulated qualifications.

The courses are self-paced with no deadlines or end dates and can be completed in a learner's own time. For example, employers can set aside two hours a day to suit the needs of their business for theory study time, without losing staff to day release schemes. Learners can also study at home if they wish. Our apprentice and staff training courses are totally flexible and there is unlimited tutor and admin support throughout.

Apprentice and Training Support courses are also ideal for those competing with other applicants to get an apprenticeship and for those who want to stand out from the crowd at a job interview.

How Do The Apprentice And Training Support Courses Work?

The structure of our courses have similarities to doing an A level and how much students learn is very much dependent on how much work they put into the course themselves. Because of this, the course hours given are only a guide. Some of our students take longer to complete their programme because they want to delve as deeply into the subject matter as possible. Others take longer due to them needing more time to process the information, if English isn't their first language for example. 

Lessons for each course begin with a set aim plus reading of the notes, that provide a foundation for each lesson and includes a self-assessment test with multiple choice answers, that must be passed before moving on.

Apprentices or trainees then undertake a set task which may include further research, practical application, networking or problem solving.

They then submit a written assignment, which is marked and graded by their tutor and sent back with any helpful and relevant comments.

After completing all the lessons and assignments, learners take one final exam. This is taken under the supervision of an adjudicator at a pre-approved time and place (e.g. at his or her place of work). The adjudicator can be someone of managerial status within the company .

Once the whole course has been finished, the apprentice or trainee will receive an Endorsed Certificate from an Ofqual Approved Awarding Organisation, plus transcript.

How Are ADL's Apprentice And Training Support Courses Different to Government Approved Schemes?

Our courses aim to give learners an education that will serve people for life. They will not only present apprentices or trainees with information, but also guide them through a series of experiences that will improve their ability to understand, communicate, solve problems and continue expanding their knowledge and skills. Therefore, by the end of the course, they should have a sound understanding of everything that the course teaches, plus more and a solid foundation from which to build and increase their value to an employer.

Independent endorsement and recognition is reassuring, but it's important to know that our courses focus on helping people to learn as much as possible, as opposed to many that primarily focus on teaching them how to pass an exam. Ultimately, many courses delivered by other providers, merely means the learner has met a set criteria of minimum standards with regards to learning and in doing so, they may actually learn less than through our mode of learning. Our effort is almost entirely on helping people to learn what really matters, which means the long term learning outcomes are better. 

We believe that we achieve the correct balance between a qualification being recognised and providing in-depth learning in a chosen discipline, which will empower people to succeed.
