Apprenticeships Frequently, Asked Questions

Each apprenticeship has a level and an equivalent education level. You can start an apprenticeship at any level.

Depending on the level, some apprenticeships may:

  • require previous qualifications such as an English or maths GCSE
  • give extra training in the English or maths skills needed so you’re at the right level

At the end of your apprenticeship, you’ll achieve the equivalent education level. For example, if you complete a level 3 apprenticeship, you’ll achieve the equivalent of an A level.

Level Equivalent education level
Intermediate 2 GCSE
Advanced 3 A level
Higher 4,5,6 and 7 Foundation degree and above
Degree 6 and 7 Bachelor’s or master’s degree

Yes, you can start an apprenticeship whether you’re starting your career, want a change or you’re upskilling in your current job. You can have a previous qualification like a degree and still start an apprenticeship.  To become and apprentice, you must: be 16 or over, not already be in full-time education, live in England

The minimum duration is 12 months of training, which takes you through to what’s known as gateway.  This is followed by and end point assessment, which must take place within 3 months of gateway .  Many of Didac’s apprenticeships take 15 to 18 months to complete giving time to develop hand and process skills.

You do need to be employed because an apprenticeship is a real job where you learn, gain experience and get paid. You’re an employee with a contract of employment and holiday leave. By the end of an apprenticeship, you’ll have the right skills and knowledge needed for your chosen career.

Ability to scan both sides of an original so that both sides can be transmitted to the remote fax as 2 pages.

Standard transmission speed of a modern fax machine. Roughly equates to a single A4 page being transmitted in 6 seconds.

Modem speed. Higher number is faster transmission speed. Both fax machines must agree on the highest common speed in order to transmit documents. The machines achieve this automatically during the call set-up phase.

ISDN is a digital network that can allow faxing an A4 page in around 3 seconds a page. Requires an ISDN modem built into the fax machine or an external modem/terminal adapter and an ISDN line.

Ability to dial a remote fax machine and to poll or pull the documents from this fax back to your own or allowing a remote fax to poll/pull documents from your machine. In the last scenario the remote fax picks up the cost of the call.

As modern fax machines use their memory for almost every function the amount of memory can usually be upgraded to a larger amount. This allows more faxes to be stored for transmission while ensuring there is still enough space to receive all incoming faxes.

Small Office / Home Office. Devices in this category are designed to be Multi-Functional Products.
