What experience and qualifications do you need?

GCSE grades (A* to C / 9 to 4) are ideal, but not essential. 

Why do I have to do BKSB assessments? 

As part of your apprenticeship, English and maths will underpin your learning and development. In order to make sure that you are working at the highest level and getting the most out of your course with Keibra, we ask all learners to sit their assessments in both English and maths in order to make sure that all apprentices are consistently at Level 2, which is the required level for your course. Although we appreciate that you may have previous qualifications, the BKSB assessments ensure that gaps in learning or required revision can be addressed alongside your Subject Matter Expert, and that you can continue to thrive in your holistic approach to learning.  

If you don’t have your GCSE certificates, then you still do have a few options to provide evidence of your results. 

  1. Keibra will check the Learner Records Service (LRS).
  2. You can reach out to the awarding body to gain a reprint. This is usually at a cost of around £50 per certificate. You will only require Maths and English for a level 3 or 4 apprenticeship.

The simple answer is yes. With the right attitude and determination, you can definitely secure an apprenticeship even with no prior experience. The key is to demonstrate your enthusiasm for the role as well as your willingness to learn. Many employers are willing to take a chance on inexperienced candidates who show commitment and drive in their applications.
