Several training organisations are available to help you when considering apprenticeships:

There are some specific requirements your apprenticeship programme will need to meet. Working with a training provider, you will have to employ the apprentice for at least 30 hours a week and pay them the National Minimum Wage. You will also need to give them an induction, provide them with on-the-job training, and review their progress. You can find out more about building an apprenticeship programme here.

Here are some ideas for the content of your apprenticeship programme:

  • on-the-job coaching and learning
  • off-the-job learning
  • employer induction and training
  • online learning and support
  • workbooks
  • projects
  • mentoring and line management support
  • specific training for individuals

There are also grants of up to £1,500 available to businesses with less than 50 employees who take on an apprentice aged between 16 and 24 years old.
