What is an Apprenticeship?

Hero Background
Develop individuals. Develop companies.

An apprenticeship is a qualification for a specific job role/ career, it is made up of knowledge, skills and behaviour units all related to the core duties you will undertake.

An MBKB apprenticeship is a programme of bespoke tailored development based around you as an individual; providing you with the tutoring, coaching and support to become an advanced practitioner and excel in your field. Although each apprenticeship is built around a job role we offer a range of pathways and options to enhance your career and grow for the future. It is flexible and exactly what you need, at least it is if you let us design it with you.

Who is this for?

Any age, any role, as long as you have the relevant opportunity’s to carry out the core duties associated with this apprenticeship, then it’s for you. We have full initial assessments and skills analysis documents that can help you decide if this is aligned to your role and more importantly your aspirations.

What Qualifications or Accreditation will I get?

At completion you will get a formally recognised Industry Standard apprenticeship qualification and professional membership options.

How long is this apprenticeship?

It will take between 12 -18months for a Level 2 or 3 Programme and around 18-30 months for Level 4 and 5 programmes.

At MBKB we can work out a planned programme length with you based, on your prior experience and career plans.

How do I pass?

Each apprenticeship has an End Point Assessment (EPA) consisting of several elements, if you look at our specific pages there are details on there. At MBKB we carry out EPA preparation with you and support you through to full completion.
