We regularly meet you and observe you undertaking tasks you have learnt to complete certain units and sit with you to review your progress.

Remember: English, Maths and in certain Frameworks ICT Functional Skills are required at Level 1 or Level 2.
If you have previously achieved GCSE A-C grades or equivalent in English, Maths & ICT you are exempt from completing them within your Apprenticeships. We will need to see your certificates when you sign up.

If you need to complete your Functional Skills qualifications with Green Labyrinth we work with you at your pace and can support you with online or paper material we have gathered over the years. You can complete your Functional Skills exams at your workplace online or on paper!

Apprenticeships are a minimum of 12 months, 
We work with you to determine a sensible duration to ensure you are confident and working at a pace suitable to your work hours and learning styles. 

If you are undertaking a higher qualification and require Functional Skills we understand these can add additional length to your duration and will discuss this with you.
