Apprenticeships have been revamped in the last few years, and with good reason.
Not just for the fresh out of school, apprenticeships are an opportunity for people at various stages of life and career to gain a skill or retrain to work in different industries.
Is a Citrus Apprenticeship for me?
To enrol for a Citrus Apprenticeship, you will need to be in full-time employment working for an employer who will support you through your apprenticeship programme. As a result, you will gain experience in a professional environment and have the opportunity to apply the skills you learn whilst studying for your chosen career. Studying online with Citrus Training, both independently and with colleagues in your workplace, the course will last between 12-24 months, depending on the programme you take.
Our training is delivered and hosted online, and you will have remote access to your tutor between your sessions for ongoing support. You will experience a range of learning methods, including direct training, self-study, networking, peer coaching, sharing of good practice, and discussion of business-related issues.
Who is it for?
We aim our apprenticeships at:
- Assistant/Trainee Site Managers and Site Supervisors
- Supervisors and Managers with no formal management qualifications
- Tradespeople and employees looking to progress their career
Below are our individual course overviews to learn more:
This Citrus Training Apprenticeship programme combines the generic Level 3 Supervisor Apprenticeship standard with a Level 3 Occupational Work Supervision NVQ or Level 4 Site Supervisor NVQ.
This Citrus Training Apprenticeship programme combines the generic Level 5 Management Apprenticeship standard and a Level 6 Construction Management NVQ. Including the NVQ means that candidates can apply for a Black CSCS card at the end of their studies.
Grants and Funding
The Apprenticeship standard in isolation does not qualify for the CITB Levy because it is not specifically construction industry related. However, employers can claim CITB Funding once the apprentice completes either the Level 3 or 4 Supervision or Level 6 Construction Management NVQ portion of the Apprenticeship.
Study with Citrus Training, and you get more than a workbook and a welcome email. We deliver content in virtual classrooms and your personal e-portfolio is tailored to your specific learning requirements. With access to an online learning dashboard and community, you can benefit from peer to peer support throughout your training experience. Working this way makes our courses accessible for people working all over the UK and enables candidates to share their breadth of experience.
All our tutors and trainers are Members of the Chartered Institute of Building (MCIOB). They have lived experience of the jobs and skills they train to their delegates, ensuring relevant and relatable learning for everyone on the course. With newly gained market-leading knowledge and abilities from tailored, construction-specific NVQs, apprentices then have the opportunity to:
- Obtain a CSCS Black Card or CSCS Gold Card thanks to our inclusion of the respective NVQ L6 in Construction Site Management or a Level 3 or 4 in Construction Site Supervision, and;
- Apply for CIOB memberships on achievement of the Level 6 NVQ. We run a series of workshops to facilitate this.
We champion learning excellence at Citrus Training and believe that everyone at all levels can improve their skillset and knowledge, and we want to lead the way.

Our apprenticeship coordinators will work with candidates to ensure their suitability and eligibility for the programmes and recommend the best course for them.
We will guide you through the application process after you have successfully completed your endpoint assessment.
We have a range of revision materials, preparation sessions, and mock assessments to experience, which will prepare you as much as possible before your assessment.
Our team of apprenticeship coordinators will work with candidates to ensure their eligibility for the programmes. We will recommend an alternative route to achieve the desired outcome or qualification if issues arise.
Apprentices will get a visit from their tutor towards the end of their NVQ so that they may see them in their place of work - a mutually convenient time and date will be arranged.
