You will attend College one day per week for two academic years, and will work in an IT environment for four days per week to support your College training.
The key focus of the apprenticeship programme is workplace training ‘on the job’, carried out in conjunction with your nominated supervisor/mentor. ‘Off the job’ training, knowledge delivery and assessment will be carried out at South Devon College within the Computing section. The knowledge modules will be completed and assessed at South Devon College. The summative portfolio NVQ units will be assessed in your company. An NVQ assessor will visit you in your workplace to observe some practical assessments and liaise with your supervisor or mentor to discuss your progress and set targets.

What will I learn?

I was first made aware of South Devon College through my employers at Scott Richards Solicitors. Since enrolling I’ve always felt supported by the tutors at the College. Our regular chats really help to ease any concerns I may have and put me back on track to progressing. There’s a flexible approach to the learning experience here, allowing me to balance a busy schedule.Naomi Corp
