How Long Does An Apprenticeship Take

The duration of an apprenticeship, like any other course, is determined by the sector you want to work in and the degree of certification you want.

You are, in any case, committing to a particular career path, not merely a topic area.

As a result, you must ensure that the programme you choose can picture yourself doing long term in an industrial field you wish to explore. Not merely the next logical step.

Here’s how long each level of apprenticeship should last:

Apprenticeship bracket Level Equivalent academic level Approximate length of apprenticeship
Intermediate 2 5 GCSEs at A* – C A minimum of 1 year
Advanced 3 2 A-Level passes Between 15 – 18 months
Higher 4, 5, 6 and 7 Foundation degree and above Between 3 and 5 years
Degree 6 and 7 Bachelor’s and Master’s degree Between 3 and 6 years
