Upskill your workforce and boost your business

How apprenticeships work

A Competenz apprenticeship is a structured programme that combines practical and technical training. It takes 3 to 4 years to complete.

Anyone can do an apprenticeship

There’s no age restriction. Employees already working in your business without formal qualifications can have their skills formally recognised.

Keeping the costs manageable

Competenz receives government funding which subsidises the costs of apprenticeships for employers.

Apprenticeship options

Competenz offers two options for apprenticeships, which you can customise to suit your business needs.
