HR Support - Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship

Course Type: Apprenticeships Start Date: September 2019 Duration: 2 Years

Course aims:

This training provides apprentices with an excellent foundation for a career in human resources. 

It can be used for existing or new employees who are typically working in a medium to large organisation as part of the HR function or are a HR Manager in a small organisation. 

Apprentices are likely to be working as Junior HR Coordinator/Administrator, or HR Advisor/Generalist roles. 

They will be typically taking ownership for providing advice to managers on a wide range of HR issues, working on a range of HR processes, using HR systems to keep records; and working with the business on HR changes.


Apprenticeships are available for school leavers and adults (19+), beginning at Level 2 through to degree level.

What levels are available?


Wages vary depending on the type of apprenticeship but there is a national minimum wage (NMW) in the UK which applies to all 16-18 year olds and to those aged 19 or over in the first year of their studies. From October 2017, this is £3.50 per hour. However, the MET encourages employers to pay at a higher hourly rate.
