Launching an apprenticeship, school leaver programme or sponsored degree can be a major challenge. It’s a complex undertaking and there are lots of steps that you’ll need to go through in order for your programme to get off to a flying start.
Before you start promoting your schemes, assessing applications and actually recruiting school leavers, you’ll need to make some key decisions and take a series of vital steps to get your new programme setup properly.
We’ve put together a bunch of articles below that will answer all of your initial questions:
Should we run an apprenticeship scheme or a school leaver programme? How long is an apprenticeship? What happens after your apprentice or school leaver trainee has finished the programme? How do you devise the programme? What apprenticeship framework should I use? What levels of apprenticeship should we offer? What kind of employment contract do we need to create? Should we use a training provider? Are we eligible for a grant or any other funding from the government?
If you’re starting from scratch, you’re in the right place. We’ll help you get started and guide you through the whole process, from registering your interest with the National Apprenticeship Service to onboarding your first school leaver employee.
