Information we provide
We regularly review apprenticeships approved by the UK Government and communicate the latest information on these. ApprenticeTips.com aims to help candidates applying for apprenticeships; apprentices who are currently employed and undertaking an apprenticeship training programme; employers and training providers looking for information on apprenticeships approved in the UK.
We provide overviews of approved apprenticeships and key information required to prepare for independent end-point assessment.

An example of this would be for the digital industries apprenticeships, you need to understand the level of detail provided in the occupational brief.
