Following updated guidance from the Government, Petroc has moved to online learning with no college attendance.
Petroc is determined to continue supporting apprentices and employers throughout this unprecedented situation. We continue to monitor the situation closely and will keep you informed of any changes. We also continue to follow the advice given for places of education issued by Public Health England.
We appreciate that apprentice workplace arrangements will vary due to the current situation. It is the employers’ responsibility if the apprentice should or should not attend the workplace. Please can you ensure that you communicate all workplace decisions and health and wellbeing guidance to your apprentice.
Please also inform assessors or account managers of any changes, so that we can support apprentices through the developments.
If you would like to discuss any concerns surrounding the current situation, please do get in touch with ApprenticeshipAdminTeam@petroc.ac.uk.
Please see our updates on the side of this page, or read our FAQs for full-time learners.

How will Petroc support me during an Apprenticeship?
Petroc has a key role to play in providing off-the-job training, assessing your progress towards achieving your qualifications and supporting you generally during your apprenticeship. They work very closely with your employer to ensure that you receive:
- an induction programme on starting.
- a detailed training plan (including on-the-job training).
- regular progress reviews.
- opportunities to put into practice off-the-job learning so that you can achieve your qualifications/requirements of the apprenticeship.
- mentoring and general support throughout your apprenticeship.
This will all be documented in a commitment statement that is part of the Apprenticeship Agreement - an individual learning plan that Petroc, your employer and you will all sign up to.
