What is an apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a programme of training designed to an industry standard for a range of specific roles. Apprenticeships will support employers to recruit fresh talent and upskill current teams to boost business. Your apprentice can be a new recruit or current employee aged 16 or over. While they work for you, they learn the core skillset for their job and study for a nationally recognised qualification. Designed in conjunction with employers, apprenticeships are targeted to the workplace and can be completely tailored to your organisation. For SMEs Apprenticeships are supported by government funding, and for large organisations supported by the government’s Apprenticeship Levy.
