Apprenticeships in Photo Imaging

The Advanced Apprenticeship in Photo Imaging has been designed by photo imaging professionals, so the training is relevant to the industry.

It is a level 3 qualification, equivalent to two A-Levels.

What are the entry requirements?

Whilst there are no qualification requirements, applicants must have an interest in and appreciation of the industry and a range of soft skills and attributes such as team work and communication skills.

As a college or training provider, it will be your responsibility to provide the off-the-job learning. You will need to work with each apprentice and employer to tailor the training to the needs of both.
