There are hundreds of apprenticeships to choose from. They offer flexible, but structured training, that meet your needs as an employer.
Apprenticeships are designed by groups of employers so they reflect the knowledge, skills and behaviours an apprentice needs for a specific occupation.
Apprentices can be a new or existing employee and they must:
- be 16 or over
- combine work with study to gain skills and knowledge in a specific job
- spend at least 20% of their working hours on ‘off-the-job’ training with your chosen training provider
What should I look for?
Apprenticeships are being developed and approved all the time, so you can choose the right apprenticeship training for your business.
When looking for an apprenticeship, make sure you:
- select the right training to suit your business
- think about the level and duration of the training
- discuss your expectations with the training provider
Don't accept training because it's the only apprenticeship available at the time.
