Apprenticeship Services

Apprenticeship Overview

All our apprenticeships are based around learners understanding the three core elements that are at the heart of all programmes:

Knowledge – understanding the theory behind the skills you are being taught

Skills – having the ability to apply the taught training techniques within the workplace

Behaviours – understanding what is expected of you within the workplace


The other three key areas you need to take into consideration are:

Off The Job (OTJ) hours – 20% off the job – a key element of all apprenticeship programmes – PIP Training would be happy to talk you through this as it is easily achievable if you apply certain rules to your programmes.

Additional skills/training that need to be taught so that candidates can get through their End Point Assessment (EPA) – there may be situations that additional training is required, outside of a job role, so that they can meet the criteria of the EPA. This would be explained in full and identified within drawn up training plans

Functional Skills – all apprenticeships will have functional skills in Engish and Maths attached to them. If learners do not have existing L2’s in English and Maths, they will be expected to participate in functional skills training sessions to work towards that L2 qualification.

Qualifications Available:

Lean Manufacturing Operative L2
Improvement Technician L3
Improvement Practitioner L4
Improvement Specialist L5

All the above programmes are designed to give your employees the skills that your business needs to drive continuous improvement and improve productivity within their organisation. Each of the above is pitched at different levels within the business but essentially the programmes cover the essential skills, knowledge, capabilities and behaviours that enable participants to become effective leaders and members of teams that are tasked to drive efficiencies at their level.

All types of organisations, and all sizes, can use the principles of continuous improvements to identify and eliminate waste in the system, which ultimately reduces costs and enhance the bottom line.

The programme is a hands-on approach to learning and applying the principles and methodology of Continuous Improvement and Lean to achieve sustainable improvements to working practices. Participants must lead/participate in at least 3 projects over an agreed period of time and demonstrate that they have applied a measurable improvement and Return On Investment (ROI) for the business on each one of those projects.
