Employment of Apprentices / Funding:

Apprentices need to be employed for a minimum of 30 hours a week in order to meet the National Apprenticeship Standard. You can use the apprenticeship standard finder on the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education website to find further information:

Most apprentices are employed on full time hours e.g., 37.5 hours a week, however the minimum requirement under the standard is 30 hours per week. Funding for tuition fees is available through application (Apprenticeship Levy requesting) and your Training Hub can help you connect with these offers.

In terms of support and mentoring in the workplace, the apprentice will need a line manager / supervisor / work colleague to train them in the required skills and to supervise their work until they are considered competent in each work task. The benefits will be a low cost / high value employee who has been trained on site and knows exactly what is required of them. .
