Advanced Apprenticeship for Laboratory Technicians

Apprenticeships give you the opportunity to work for an employer, earn a salary and at the same time study to achieve a nationally recognised qualification whilst gaining valuable workplace skills and experience.

 

Apprenticeships are flexible and are designed to offer a structured programme of learning to fit around the needs of the individual and the employer. 

 

This Apprenticeship provides the skills, knowledge and competence required to work within a laboratory. A laboratory technician may carry out both routine and one-off laboratory testing and perform a variety of technical support functions across the organisation. Laboratory technicians are expected to work both individually and as part of a laboratory team. They are able to work with minimum supervision, taking responsibility for the quality and accuracy of the work that is undertaken.

 

Apprenticeships are flexible and are designed to offer a structured programme of learning to fit around the needs of the individual and the employer. Learning takes place mainly during employment through the development of ‘on the job’ skills, supported by ‘off the job’ training which will take place at Kingston College, typically for one day per week.

How can taking on an Apprentice help your business?
