Assistance with finding and recruiting an apprentice or supporting existing employees

Apprentices are aged 16 or over and combine working with studying for a work-based qualification - from GCSEs or equivalent up to degree level.

 

Apprentices can be new or current employees.

 

You could get a grant or funding to employ an apprentice if you're in England.

 

You must pay the apprentice at least the minimum wage during their placement with you.

 

Your apprentice must:

  • work with experienced staff
  • learn job-specific skills
  • study for a work-based qualification during their working week, eg at a college or training organisation

Hiring your apprentice

 

There are several steps to taking on an apprentice.

  1. Check the apprenticeships framework for an apprenticeship in your industry and at a suitable level.

  2. Register your interest in employing an apprentice with the National Apprenticeship Service.

  3. Find a training organisation that offers apprenticeships for your industry - they'll handle your apprentice's training, qualification and assessment.

  4. Check you're eligible for a grant and apply.

  5. Advertise your apprenticeship - your training organisation will do this for you through apprenticeship vacancies. You can track your vacancies by registering as an employer.
