The Salvation Army’s Apprenticeship scheme aims to utilise and promote apprenticeships, as one of our many valuable training options. They are a great way to develop our existing workforce as well as attract fresh new talent to our organisation.
Current apprenticeship standards have been designed by industry experts to ensure apprentices that complete these work based training programmes, acquire the modern and essential skills needed to thrive in the work place today. We work with a range of trainer providers, colleges and universities to provide many apprenticeship to suit a variety of roles and responsibilities. Apprenticeships are delivered through a combination of 1-2-1 and blended learning activities, you will be also be assigned a coach/trainer who will work with you and your line manager to help you achieve the qualification.

Apprenticeships are delivered across the Devolved Nations, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Each nation has different apprenticeship programme design and eligibility for funding around the amount of funding providers can draw down to support employers. Learner eligibility, programme delivery, and the arrangements for external quality assurance and inspection are also different.
The Devolved Nations deliver apprenticeship frameworks as opposed to apprenticeship standards (which are the programmes used in England).
