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.
