A MASS Apprenticeship is the first step in building your career around a subject you love, working alongside like-minded people to make a difference.
When you start an apprenticeship with us you earn a salary from day one, gain a formally recognised qualification and build vital on-the-job experience without building up university debts.
We currently offer apprenticeships in technology, facilities management and HR and we hope to extend the scheme to other areas soon. Our apprenticeships are open to everyone, whether you’re just starting out or are looking for a change in career and we welcome applicants of all ages.
There are four levels to apprenticeships:
Intermediate - An intermediate apprenticeship is equivalent to five good GCSE passes. The apprentice work towards level 2 certificates or work-based learning qualifications. These provide the skills required for the apprentice’s chosen career and allow entry to an advanced apprenticeship.
Advanced - An advanced apprenticeship is equivalent to two A Level passes. Advanced apprentices can work towards level 3 work-based learning certificates or qualifications such as a BTEC. To start advanced apprenticeship programme, the applicant should ideally have five GCSEs at grade 4 (formerly grade C) or above or have completed an intermediate apprenticeship.
Higher - Higher apprenticeships work towards level 4, 5, 6 or 7 work-based learning diplomas or certificates or knowledge-based qualifications such as Foundation degrees or above. Apprentices can also progress to higher education, including university degrees.
Degree - Degree apprenticeships sit on level 6 or 7. Like the other levels they combine paid work with study in the university and lead to bachelor’s or master’s degree. Universities generally set the entry requirement for a degree apprenticeship at least level 3, for instance A Levels.
