New opportunities are waiting, are you ready?
An apprenticeship is a real job with training, enabling learners to earn while they learn and to achieve nationally recognised qualifications.
Apprenticeships are available to businesses of all sizes and sectors in England and can last from 12 months to four years, depending on the type or level of the programme. Apprentices can be either new or current employees.
The NEW Outdoor Activity Instructor Apprenticeship focuses on training individuals who are new to the sector to run safe and enjoyable activity sessions with children and adults. IOL Project Management assisted employers drawn from across the breadth of the Outdoor Sector to collaborate and produce a ground-breaking new Trailblazer Outdoor Activity Instructor Apprenticeship Standard. The standard is at Level 3, lasts 12-18 months, and has no set training syllabus so can be bespoke to each Apprentice, include the use of relevant NGB awards, and attract up to £6000 of funding towards off-the-job training and end-point assessment per apprentice..
Employers and IOL are now biding to Government to create further Trailblazer Apprenticeships appropriate for more complex roles. More details here.
