What's available in Northern Ireland

Apprenticeships are divided into two levels. In Northern Ireland they are known as Level 2 ApprenticeshipNI (Level 2) and Level 3 ApprenticeshipNI (Level 3).

A Level 2 ApprenticeshipNI is an introductory framework aimed at those just entering the industry and wanting to gain the basic skills needed for further development. It is the minimum standard required to work effectively in a business.

An Level 3 ApprenticeshipNI is the target level for anyone wanting to be a truly proficient professional in their chosen field. It expands upon the basic skills gained at Intermediate Level and is aimed at those wishing to enter the top level of their profession or go on to become managers and owners. People who have been in the industry for some time but are looking to update or accredit their skills can also take it.
