apprentice resizedAn Apprenticeship is a way for young people and adults to earn in a real job while they learn and gain a valued qualification at the same time. Hiring an apprentice means that you can grow your own talent and develop someone whose skills become tailor-made for your business.

Apprenticeships take from 12 months to four years to complete. There are three levels of Apprenticeships:

  • Apprenticeship (Level 2)
  • Advanced Apprenticeship (Level 3)
  • Higher Level Apprenticeship (Level 4 and above)

Most of the training is on-the-job and working with a mentor to learn job specific skills in the workplace. Other training may be delivered away from the workplace, e.g. in college through 'day release' arrangements. This will depend on how you would prefer to work and the requirements of the specific qualification.

What will it cost?

You will need to employ your apprentice on a salary that meets the national minimum wage for Apprenticeships. The cost of training for those aged 16-18 is covered by the government. If an apprentice is aged 19 or over, you will expect to pay a contribution towards the cost of the training.
