What level is an Advanced Apprenticeship?
Advanced Apprenticeships are fairly straightforward. All of them are Level 3 apprenticeships.
That’s great! But what does Level 3 mean?
Every type of course in England, Wales and Northern Ireland are assigned to one of nine qualification levels, ranging from ‘Entry level’ to Level 8.
The most common qualification you’ve heard of at Level 3 is an A-level. So if you complete an Advanced Apprenticeship, you will have completed a Level 3 qualification which is equivalent to an A-Level.
