Relevant to

Advanced apprenticeships are also called Level 3 apprenticeships, and generally considered to be the same level as two A level passes.  

Some people who already have Level 3 qualifications, including A levels, choose the advanced apprenticeship route because if enables them to develop work-based skills and experience in a particular job and sector. This means some advanced apprenticeships are highly competitive.  

Entry requirements vary, but you will usually need at least five GCSEs with grades A* to C (9 – 4 on the new grading system), including English and maths.
