Our apprenticeship offer for the science sector.


Our Apprenticeship Offer

Below you will find the current Apprenticeships we are offering in the Applied Science sector.

Under the government’s Apprenticeship Reforms, new Apprenticeship Standards developed with employers are replacing the old Apprenticeship Frameworks. As this is not due to  come into effect fully until 2020, The Sheffield College's current apprenticeship offer encompasses both frameworks and standards. Primarily, the difference between a standard and a framework, is that standards focus on a specific occupation or role, and are assessed differently. You can read more about the distinction between frameworks and standards here.
