Apprenticeships and National Vocational Qualifications

Dynamis offers Apprenticeships in IT, Business Admin, Management and Customer Service.

  • What is an Apprenticeship?

    An Apprenticeship is a work-based training programme designed around the needs of employers, which leads to nationally recognised qualifications for the apprentice. This training is flexible and is predominantly ‘on-the-job’ so it takes place on your premises. Learning providers (such as an FE College or a training provider) can help, or you can deliver everything yourself. An Apprenticeship will ensure that your apprentice is properly trained to perform the job you need them to do and you can potentially receive government funding.

  • Who can be an apprentice?

    Anyone, from a school-leaver looking to enter the workplace to an existing employee who wants to progress in their chosen career. An Apprenticeship is a great way to motivate your staff and enable them to take on more tasks and responsibilities. “One in five employers is hiring more apprentices to help them through the tough economic climate.” – National Apprenticeship Service website

    The employer’s guide to Apprenticeships:

    Have you considered hiring an apprentice or investing in an Apprenticeship for an existing member of staff?

  • How would employing an apprentice benefit my company?

    • Apprentices can gain knowledge and skills that enable your business to work better and quicker.
    • They can strengthen your bottom line by improving productivity and enabling you to be more competitive.
    • They can fill any skills gaps in your workforce, often introducing new techniques and technology to increase productivity.
    • Apprenticeships can attract higher calibre staff and lead to a more motivated and committed workforce who stay longer, cutting recruitment and training costs.
    • Apprentices who start their working life with a company can be trained to embrace the company culture and tend to have a higher commitment to the overall objectives.
    • Introducing young, enthusiastic apprentices into the company can have a positive effect on the business, encouraging a culture of learning.

    Dynamis offers NVQs in Business Admin, Customer Service, Management and Residential


    If there is an NVQ that you are interested in but we do not currently
    offer please contact us and we may be able to meet your needs.

  • What are NVQs?

    National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs) are designed to demonstrate a
    learner’s occupational competence.

    They are usually delivered in the workplace, although some sectors and
    levels may be delivered in settings that replicate the working environment
    if this is explicitly stated by the relevant Sector Skills Council or
    Standards Setting Body.

    Our NVQs are based on the National Occupational Standards, which define
    the skills, knowledge and understanding needed to do a particular job.

    National Occupational Standards are set by Sector Skills Councils or
    Standards Setting Bodies in consultation with the sector. This means that
    our NVQs are designed to meet the changing needs of your area of work.

    National Occupational Standards are statements of performance which
    describe what competent people in an area of work should be able to do.
    This may include:
    1 – The knowledge and understanding that underpin competent performance
    2 – Current best practice
    3 – The standards required for competence

  • Why take NVQs?

    NVQs give many people the opportunity to work and achieve a qualification
    at the same time. They are usually studied part-time and can be taken as a
    stand-alone qualification, or as part of an Apprenticeship.

    NVQs and competence-based qualifications offer proof that you can do a job
    to the required standard. They are offered at different levels, ranging
    from 1 to 7 depending on the sector. This means you can study at the level
    that’s right for your job role and level of experience, and progress

    NVQs are outcome-based with no fixed learning programme, giving centres
    the flexibility to deliver the course to meet each individual
    candidate’s needs.

  • How are NVQs assessed?

    Your assessment is based on the practical activity you undertake in the
    workplace and a portfolio of evidence to show that you meet occupational
    standards. A qualified assessor will observe you while you’re at work
    and question you to test your knowledge and understanding.

    NVQs are assessed internally, with all internal assessment quality assured
    by qualified external verifiers.

  • What can I do once I have taken an NVQ?

    NVQs are designed to enhance your promotion prospects by allowing you to
    learn and demonstrate new skills.

    Once you have completed your course, you may decide you want to continue
    with further training, like an NVQ at the next level or another related
    professional qualification.
