MCQ have added an extra element to their growing portfolio, BTEC Apprenticeships. Maureen Allinson, one of MCQ's Directors said, "I feel there is an outstanding selection of resources available and some excellent support for our learners" MCQ has been involved with Apprenticeships for nearly 20 years and feel the time is right for the BTEC Apprenticeship."
The MCQ TRAINEESHIP is part of the same family as apprenticeships. Employers currently provide Apprenticeships for young people and adults.This is a real job with training. However, this is not the best step for everybody and some young people especially will benefit from some WORK EXPERIENCE and extra LIFE SKILLS before taking on an Apprenticeship.
The Higher Apprenticeship is an excellent route if you have already undertaken an Intermediate or Advanced Apprenticeship and have now progressed to a more senior role. It is open to anyone employed in an appropriate job role either as an existing or newly recruited member of staff.
The Apprenticeship Grant for Employers of 16- to 24- year-olds (AGE 16 to 24) supports businesses that would not otherwise be in a position to do so, to recruit individuals aged 16 to 24 into employment through the Apprenticeship programme. The Government offers the Grant to those employers who are eligible to receive it. You can receive up to 10 grants in total; each one is worth £1,500.
