Apprentices are aged 16 or over and combine working with studying for a work-based qualification - from GCSEs or equivalent up to degree level.
There are several steps to taking on an apprentice.
You can use an apprenticeship training agency if you want to employ an apprentice without the responsibility for running the apprenticeship scheme.
For further details, visit the institute for apprenticeships.
Apprenticeships can last from one to four years, depending on the level of qualification the apprentice is studying for.
For more information on how to recruit an apprentice into your business contact the National Apprenticeship Service for help or advice.
We actively encourage the employment of apprentices and run our own in-house apprenticeship programme, graded as good in a recent Ofsted inspection. The programme also offers an apprenticeship training service to local employers.
