Access government support to hire an apprentice

17 December 2021

86% of employers said apprenticeships helped them develop skills relevant to their organisation.

If you’re looking to expand your team, find new talent or add new skills to your business; apprentices are a great way to help your business succeed.

Apprenticeships can offer career starters, career changers or those looking to upskill (of any age), the opportunity to learn while they earn. They combine study with practical work experience through a paid job and can last between one and six years.

To make the hiring process easier, you can search for apprenticeship training using our online service, and access government funding to cover training and assessment costs.

Once you have chosen the right apprenticeship training for your business, you will need to create an apprenticeship service account, where you can manage apprenticeship funding, advertise vacancies and more.
