Hire an apprentice

Apprenticeships are a way for young people – and adults – to learn while working, gain recognised qualifications and a foothold into their future.

By hiring an apprentice, you will in turn help to grow a workforce of motivated, skilled and qualified employees.

Find out more

Apprentices are employed by your business and may spend time on day release at one of our partner colleges working towards the theory (knowledge-based) side of the apprenticeship and functional skills, if required.

Some apprenticeships are delivered entirely in the workplace, with our assessors visiting the apprentice to assess and progress their learning.

Contact us to arrange for an experienced client manager to visit you and discuss how we can help.
