What is an Apprenticeship?

 

 

 

Apprenticeships are a training programme for young people, aged 16 to 24, (there may be some funding available for over 24’s) that deliver skills designed around your business needs. This means that your organisation is able to develop the specialist skills in your workforce that you need to keep pace with the latest technology and working practices.

 

As an employer you would be expected to employ the apprentice and pay the relevant salary that reflects their skills, experience and age. The minimum salary that can be paid to an apprentice is currently £95 per week.

 

The Apprenticeship is work-based which allows your employee to learn whilst working on the job alongside your experienced staff and gain a nationally recognised qualification at the same time.

 

The programme normally takes a minimum of 12 months to complete.

 

LGS offer the Level 2 Apprenticeship, which is equivalent to 5 good GCSE passes

 

 

What are the benefits of Apprenticeships?

 

Research on businesses that employ apprentices indicate that some of the business benefits are;

 

Improved productivity

Relevant skills coming into the business

Improved staff retention

A more motivated and satisfied workforce

Government funding to cover training costs

Avoids skills shortages

Succession planning to combat an ageing workforce

 

 

Can anyone be an Apprentice?

 

The trainee must be employed or sponsored by a company and not be on any other Government funded scheme.
