Who can become an apprentice?

Apprenticeships are growing in popularity with employers and individuals alike.

Businesses are progressively adopting apprenticeships for both their new and existing employees; realising their significance in tackling skill deficiencies, infusing novel perspectives, promoting diversity, and bolstering employee retention.

With no upper age limit, anyone can become an apprentice, from junior members of staff to senior managers and company directors.

Apprenticeships are an affordable staff training option

Whether you're a levy payer or not, employees aged 16-18 are fully funded by the government and you'll receive a £1,000 grant.

For levy payers:

All employers with a wage bill of over £3 million per annum are required to pay 0.5% of their total wage bill into the Apprenticeship Levy. The Levy can be used to train new and existing staff through Apprenticeship Training. At the end of the financial year, the levy resets - so use it or lose it.

For non-levy payers:

Non-levy payers can take advantage of Government funding with 95% of course costs funded. You'll only need to contribute 5% to the cost of apprenticeship training.

What is expected of me?

As a business owner or training leader, you'll enable your apprentice to access the tools available to learn the skills and complete their End Point Assessment. This includes:

  • Understanding the standard and setting realistic objectives for training. 
  • Attending regular catch ups every 10-12 weeks with the College to review how the training is going and to ensure all parties are working to the agreed plan.
  • Understanding how your apprentice will be assessed during their EPA to help prepare them.

By choosing apprenticeships, not only will you be able to address short- and long-term skills gaps in your organisation, but you will boost staff morale, help retention and save time and money on recruitment.
