How to apply

Apps entry reqs

Before you can apply to join any of our apprenticeship programmes, you need to be formally nominated by your employer. We therefore recommend that you discuss this opportunity with your line manager.


To start an apprenticeship, you must:

  • be aged 16 or over (no upper age limit)
  • have the right to work in England and spend at least 50% of your working hours in England during your apprenticeship
  • be in a permanent role or in contract for the duration of your chosen apprenticeship programme
  • have eligible residency status.

Baseline assessment

In your baseline assessment, you will need to demonstrate the need for new learning of the knowledge, skills and behaviours as outlined in the apprenticeship standard.

Other entry requirements

For full entry requirements, please refer to the relevant programme page.

To complete an apprenticeship

English and maths requirements

You MUST have obtained Level 2 qualifications in English and maths (i.e. GCSEs at Grades 9-4 or A*-C, or equivalent) to successfully complete the Henley apprenticeship programme.

Why do we ask for this?

Next steps

Your employer will need to formally nominate you to join the apprenticeship programme.

Once you have been nominated and your eligibility confirmed, you will be sent a baseline assessment to establish your knowledge, skills and behaviours. You will then receive your online application link. Typically there is a two-week timeframe for your application to be completed.
