What are my responsibilities as an employer to my apprentice?

Close Icon

There must be a genuine job available with a contract of employment long enough for an apprentice to complete their apprenticeship. You must pay an apprentice’s wages and the role must help them gain the knowledge, skills and behaviours they need to achieve the apprenticeship with support.

You will need to have:

  • an apprenticeship agreement in place with their apprentice for the duration of the apprenticeship
  • a commitment statement signed by the apprentice, yourself as the employer and us as the training provider
  • for employers who pay the apprenticeship levy and use the apprenticeship service; you will need to have a contract for services in place which we can support with
  • an apprenticeship in place for at least one year
  • the apprentice on the correct wage for their age, for the time they are in work, in off-the-job training and doing further study

Can my existing staff start an apprenticeship?

Close Icon

Of course! Placing your existing staff on an apprenticeship is a great way of upskilling your employees and uncovering your future managers. It can be a great way of motivating and rewarding your staff by committing to their continued personal development within your business.

How does the apprentice learn?

Close Icon

Apprentices do most of their learning at work and benefit from regular contact with their dedicated assigned assessor. There is coursework to be completed while on the course, which is to be submitted online, however, the knowledge to complete this is provided while learning inside your business.

How much do I have to pay an apprentice?

Close Icon

Apprentices must be paid at least the national minimum wage for apprentices if they are aged 19 and under or aged 19 and over and in their first year of an apprenticeship.

Apprentices are often paid higher amounts as their skills develop and we encourage employers to do so

Why should I take on an apprentice?

Close Icon

Apprentices can bring fresh new ideas to your business allowing them to grow and thrive. You gain skilled qualified staff in a cost-effective way. They can motivate your workforce more and overall enhance your business performance while addressing skills shortages in your business.

What is off-the-job training for apprentices?

Close Icon

Training that is delivered outside of their normal working duties.

The apprentice must receive off-the-job training for a minimum of 20% of the time that they are paid to work.

Off-the-job training is:
Learning completed outside of the normal day-to-day working environment and leads towards the achievement of the
apprenticeship directly relevant to the apprenticeship.

Off-the-job training can be:
The teaching of theory – for example lectures, role playing, simulations exercises or online learning. It  can also be practical training – for example shadowing, mentoring and industry visits. As well as learning support and time spent writing assessments or assignments.
