What is an apprenticeship?
An apprenticeship is a real job with training. It is a way for individuals to earn while they learn gaining valuable skills and knowledge in a specific job role.
Apprenticeships are available in 1,500 occupations across 170 industries. Businesses of all sizes and sectors in England can recruit an apprentice and they can last anything from 12 months to 4 years.
Apprenticeships benefit employers and individuals, and by boosting the skills of the workforce they help to improve economic productivity.
How do they work?
A training organisation such as a college, training provider or university will work closely with you to ensure the apprenticeship offered is the most appropriate for the individual’s job role, whilst reflecting both employer and learner needs.
Most of the training is on-the-job, working with a mentor to learn job specific skills in the workplace.
Who are they for?
Individuals over the age of 16, living in England and not in full time education can apply for an apprenticeship. Employers can offer apprenticeships to new entrants or use them to grow talent from among current employees.
Benefits of hiring Apprentices
Hiring apprentices is a productive and effective way for businesses to grow their own talent by developing a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce.
83% of employers would recommend apprenticeships to others. The average apprenticeship completer increases business productivity by £214 per week, with these gains including increased prospects, lower prices and better products.
Employers must give their apprentice an induction to their role and provide on the job training. Employers are responsible for paying their apprentice’s wages and issuing their contract of employment.
