Frequently asked questions…

What is an apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes that are designed to boost the skill across diverse roles and sectors. Employers can use apprenticeship training to fill key skill gaps in their business, boost employee motivation by investing in their development and improve retention.

How do apprenticeship programmes work?

Each apprenticeship programme has been designed by industry employer-led “trailblazer” groups to fully meet employer business needs and make sure apprentices are more highly skilled and productive in their role. You can get help from the government to pay for apprenticeship training. The amount you get depends on whether you pay the apprenticeship levy or not. You pay the levy if you’re an employer with a pay bill over £3 million each year.

Do apprentices have to be new employees?

No you can hire someone new or upskill an existing employee. Apprentices can be school leavers, university graduates, or people who want to further their careers or change career direction completely
