An apprenticeship is a real job with training, designed to help employers train their workforce and for the apprentice to receive training, develop their skills and get certified.
Apprenticeships enable you to learn new practical skills whilst studying, applying through a more vocational training route. All apprenticeships at Starbucks have a qualification embedded into the standard and you will therefore have the chance to study and achieve a recognized qualification, right up to diploma level.
Apprenticeships also offer you the opportunity to earn whilst you learn, with minimum tuition fees associated, ensuring that on completion of your apprenticeship and qualification that you are student debt free.

At the end of your apprenticeship, you will be put forward for an independent end-point assessment which will determine if you have successfully passed your apprenticeship.
At the end of the apprenticeship, you will undertake an end-point assessment in which you will be assessed with a view to signing-off and successfully completing your Apprenticeship. There will be an opportunity for you to pass or pass with distinction through competence-based activities such as a work-based project, multiple choice assessment test, work-based observation and a professional discussion.
