Employers

We work with employers of all sizes to design apprenticeship programmes to meet organisational and training needs. We tailor programmes around job roles and skills gaps to make the training relevant to your occupational area, within the scope of the chosen Apprenticeship Standard.

Apprenticeships can be used to upskill existing staff into a new role or to bring new employees into your business. We can support you with advertising and recruitment to make the process easier for your business.

Apprentices must be paid at least the National Minimum Wage for apprentices, and employers must commit to supporting a minimum of 20% paid time towards learning the main aim, and support upskilling of English and maths to level 2 if not previously achieved. Traineeships are extended work experience of 100 hours, alongside employability, English and maths study over a period of 6 - 26 weeks. Traineeships support engagement between business and potential future employees.

Employees, apprentices and trainees

Apprenticeships are paid jobs with embedded training. At least 20% of paid time will be spent carrying out off the job training; this may be in the normal work setting or in a training setting. We work closely with the apprentice and employer to plan an individualised learning experience for each apprentice. Traineeships are pre-apprenticeship work experience programmes with an employability, maths and English study programme.

Enrolment is only available via application to an employer. All vacancies in England are advertised at Find an apprenticeship on the GOV.UK website.
