Welcome to Employing an Apprentice, the comprehensive information hub to help apprentices and support employers.

Our aim is to help employers and jobseekers alike in navigating the world of technical education.

For young people, the number of options can be daunting, with traineeships, t-levels and an overwhelming number of different types of apprenticeships, so making the right choice can be difficult. Luckily for you, we have taken the time to compile all the information there is into one place, so whether you just want to know what an apprenticeship is, or want to find support in your local area, the guide is here on this site.

For businesses, our site has condensed the complicated world of recruiting an apprentice into one site. Employing an Apprentice has everything from information on schemes like the Apprenticeship Levy to guides for finding a training provider or local assistance. With new government schemes and funding around technical education being announced every day, keep up to date on this website and make sure you never miss out on an opportunity again.

We are here to make sure that everyone has equal access to opportunities, and believe that by connecting those young people who may have been left behind with UK businesses we can help them both reach their future potential.
