GR ETB has developed a ‘Study and Learning Handbook’ along with an ‘Introductory Maths Course’ which we intend to adapt for use with this apprenticeship. This innovative approach intervenes at Phase 1 of the apprenticeship cycle to support apprentices on their journey to successfully completing all phases of their apprenticeship as well as providing an integrated literacy and numeracy service.
