Listed below are all of the course areas which offer apprenticeships at Boston College, along with a break down of the different levels available to help you make the right choice for you.

Intermediate Apprenticeships - An Intermediate or Level 2 Apprenticeship is the equivalent to five GCSEs at 9-4 (grades A*-C) and is a perfect choice if you are taking your first steps into employment. You will work towards a relevant Level 2 qualification and you will also be able to develop your English, Maths and ICT skills if necessary.

Advanced Apprenticeships - An Advanced or Level 3 Apprenticeship is equivalent to two A level passes. Ideally, you should have already completed an Intermediate Apprenticeship, and have a good knowledge of the industry you are working in. You will work towards a relevant Level 3 qualification which will provide an even deeper understanding of your industry, as well as having the opportunity to develop your skills in English, Maths and ICT.

Higher Apprenticeships - As a Higher Apprentice you will work towards a Level 4 qualification or above. Successful completion could lead on to studies at Level 5 (Foundation Degree) or Level 6 (Bachelors Degree), to take your career to the next level.
