What Qualifications Do You Need For An Advanced Apprenticeship

Advanced apprenticeships, often known as Level 3 apprenticeships, are commonly considered equal to two A levels.

Some people with Level 3 qualifications, including A levels, choose the advanced apprenticeship route because it enables them to acquire work-related skills and experience in a particular sector and region. As a result, specific advanced apprenticeships are very competitive.

So what qualifications do you need for an advanced apprenticeship? Entry requirements vary, but at least five GCSEs with grades 9 to 4/A* to C, including English and Maths, are usually required.
