Entry requirements

You will need to be aged 16 years and over and in a senior position or undertaking duties of a supervisory nature to apply for the Level 3 Traffic Office programme. As this is a work-based qualification you must be employed and working a minimum of 16 hours per week.

The applicant will undertake a diagnostic assessment at Level 2 for both maths and English and a free writing exercise prior to enrolment. You will be required to achieve a score of 50% or above in both subjects to ensure a place on the apprenticeship programme.

If you have passed maths and English GCSE with a grade A* to C or functional/key skills at Level 2, you will be required to evidence this with certificate/s which will then result in exemption from undertaking the maths and English functional skill qualification within the apprenticeship framework.

Start dates and fees

During your apprenticeship your employer is obliged to pay you a wage at the minimum rate for an apprentice.
