How does it work?

Once we have matched your recruitment needs to an apprenticeship, we’ll find candidates for the role. Employing an apprentice means you get a staff member and we assess them on the job to give them a nationally recognised qualification.

How long?

Takes between 1-2 years to complete. Some are the equivalent of a degree and can be either on a full or part-time basis.

How much?

Employers need to cover the minimum apprenticeship wage of £4.15 per hour, although many employers choose to pay more. There is assistance and incentives for larger employers via the Apprenticeship Levy.
