This is an excellent means for individuals aged 16+ who are in employment, to gain new skills and qualifications whilst working.  Hiring apprentices helps businesses to grow their own talent by developing a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce.

 

Who are they for?

Apprenticeships are suitable for both new employees as well as for existing staff.  Even those who already hold a degree can benefit from accessing apprenticeship funding to gain new skills.

 

How long do they take?

Depending on the sector and job role, an apprenticeship can take anything between one and five years to complete.

 

Types and levels of apprenticeships

Apprenticeships are available in a wide range of industry sectors with employers from large national companies to smaller local companies. They are available at intermediate, advanced, higher and degree level, covering more than 170 industries and 1,500 job roles, including digital media, business improvement techniques, nursing, cyber security, engineering, finance, costume design – no matter what the needs of your business or how niche the services and products are that you offer, there will most likely be an apprenticeship to suit your business.

Training

Most of the training is on-the-job at an employer’s premises, working with a mentor to learn job specific skills in the workplace. Off-the-job training is provided by a training organisation (we have extensive experience as a training provider having successfully delivered Apprenticeship programmes) and these are delivered through day release, block release, on-site learning or a blend of different methods. The delivery model will be something that will be negotiated with Employers and learners to ensure that it is right for every business and individual circumstances.
