Apprenticeships & Vocational Learning

Sue Davison, Apprenticeship Programme Manager quote Sodexo is passionate about helping people develop to become the talent they aspire to be

Apprenticeships - the art of the possible

What are apprenticeships?

As an employer, Sodexo contributes to an apprenticeship levy fund that employees can access.*

  • Employees can use the fund to develop their own careers
  • Managers can use the fund to support employee recruitment and upskilling of their team

Apprenticeships are for anyone over the age of 16.* If you have a degree or any other qualifications, you can still upskill through an apprenticeship programme, as long it fulfils a skills gap in your next role. In fact, there are higher level programmes available, which are the equivalent to a degree, so take advantage!

*There may be differences in funding and accessibility for Scotland, Wales and Ireland

Vocational learning

What is vocational learning?

Vocational learning covers courses you can do while at work. It’s based on either a National Vocational Qualification (NVQ), Scottish Vocational Qualification (SVQ) or Skills for Life Qualification.

NVQs and SVQs assess you against national standards and they come in different levels - most commonly Levels 2 and 3. The level you can study for is based on your current level of responsibility and job role, not any previous qualifications you might have. You can also complete these courses and other qualifications as part of an apprenticeship - see the information above!


How do I start vocational learning?

For any information on vocational learning at Sodexo, speak to your HR business partner or your manager.
