Employing An Apprentice In Your Business

Hiring An Apprentice

Apprenticeships help bring valuable skills into your business with the government’s support. They’re suitable for people at any level so you can employ someone new or upskill an existing employee.

Employing An Apprentice In Your Business
You’ll need to create an apprenticeship service account to hire an apprentice. You can then either:

  • choose an apprenticeship training course and find a training provider using find apprenticeship training
  • create your own apprenticeship opportunity using recruit an apprentice

If you create an apprenticeship opportunity, we’ll advertise it on find an apprenticeship.

You can manage the recruitment process or ask 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

There are other ways to find an apprentice and increase the diversity of your applicants. For example, you can:

  • hold open days
  • arrange visits to schools, colleges and universities
  • use social media
  • participate in careers events, like World Skills UK Live
