Apprenticeships are for young people aged 16 and upwards.
The young person will need to have achieved GCSE grades A-C or 9-4 or equivalent or continue to work towards this as part of the apprenticeship. Young people with an EHC plan are exempt from passing in order to progress.
The government made English and maths an extra requirement (something you must achieve to complete your apprenticeship). If a young person has/had an EHC plan, there may be some flexibility around the maths and English requirement. This can be discussed with the employer or training provider.
