Hiring an apprentice

Apprenticeships help bring valuable skills into your business with the government’s support.

They are suitable for people at any level so you can hire someone new or upskill an existing employee.

Advertise your apprenticeship

Next, you will need to advertise your apprenticeship. You can do this using the recruit an apprentice service through your digital service account.

When advertising, be as clear as possible regarding the candidate that you are looking for and the responsibilities that they will undertake, so candidates can quickly understand whether the apprenticeship is right for them.

You can manage the recruitment process or ask us as your training provider to manage it on your behalf.

An apprentice must:

  • be 16 or over
  • not already be in full-time education
  • be living in England
