    The content covered on jewellery apprenticeships are largely determined by the apprentice and the employer. As there are no courses which apprentices can be sent on day release, there is a lot of freedom for the apprentices to choose how they want their training to progress. Due to the fact that there is no day release course, apprentices are very reliant on their mentor in the workplace to provide them with support and training.

    The Apprenticeship scheme can provide funding for a number of courses, in the same way that there is a budget for training on other courses not offered at the GCFE. Apprentices in the past have been to the UK and even the Netherlands for courses in the past and there is a lot of variety in the different courses on offer.

    Some courses deal with the technology involved with jewellery, others the machinery involved. There are also courses which allow apprentices to learn how to work with different metals, and gems and other materials involved in the process.
