Information for Employers


How can taking on an Apprentice help your business?
The Apprenticeship framework is designed to meet the needs of employers and to provide a vocational pathway into a profession.  Intermediate level apprentices will train in roles appropriate to their chosen profession, learning on the job practical skills working at a business four days and attending college one day each week.  The duration of an apprenticeship course is a minimum of 12 months.
All Apprenticeship frameworks are designed to provide apprentices with the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to perform their job role and to support their future progressions.  Apprenticeships are an ideal way to help your business harness fresh new talent.

What do you need to know?
Apprenticeships can be suitable for either a new employee or an existing member of staff.  They typically involve four days a week on the job training and one day a week at college.  You will be responsible for the apprentice’s wages which, from October 2015, will be £132 per week.

An Apprenticeship consists of:

  • An appropriate-level Knowledge Certificate (usually level 2 or level 3).
  • An NVQ practical qualification (usually level 2 or level 3).
  • Functional Skills qualification (if the candidate has not previously achieved a GCSE grade C in English and Maths).
  • Employee Rights & Responsibilities
  • Personal learning and thinking skills
