You can do Intermediate Apprenticeships in all sorts of areas and industries with all types of companies. On an Intermediate Apprenticeship, you’ll spend most of the time working for an employer and learning on-the-job, but you’ll also spend some time at a training institution or local college, gaining qualifications at Level 2. These will include a Level 2 Competence qualification, a Functional Skills qualification and a relevant knowledge-based qualification.
This is the same for all Intermediate Apprenticeships, but there is a wide range of industries and specialisms to choose from. On the government website (which lists every single official apprenticeship in the country) there are Intermediate Apprenticeship vacancies in the industries listed below.
Construction, Planning and the Built Environment: for example, civil engineering.
