94.7% of apprentices found out college induction useful and it provided them with the knowledge required for their course.
Three quarters (75%) of apprentices who had never worked before starting their apprenticeship, remained in paid work after completing their apprenticeship.
I do not have time to write a job description. Is this something you can help with?
Yes, once you have sent in an enquiry to the college, a business engagement advisor will be allocated to you. They are experienced within your sector and will be there to support you through the full recruitment process of your apprentice.
What happens if an apprentice goes on maternity leave or is off sick for a long period of time?
If an apprentice is going to be off for a significant amount of time, we can put them on a break in learning that stops the apprenticeship at the point they got up to. They can then restart it when they are back in work. Further details on this can be discussed with your apprentice’s assessor.
