Employer Responsibilities

There must be a genuine job available with a contract of employment long enough for an apprentice to complete their apprenticeship. 

Employers must pay an apprentice’s wages and the role must help them gain the knowledge, skills and behaviours they need to achieve the apprenticeship with support from the employer.
