Every apprenticeship must have an Apprenticeship Agreement. This is a contract of service between the apprentice and the employer, confirming the apprenticeship and the standard being undertaken. This will be supplemented by a ‘Statement of Commitment’ signed by the employer, university and apprentice, setting out the expectations, roles and responsibility of each party involved in the apprenticeship.
- Apprentices must be employed and paid at least a minimum wage appropriate to their age and job role
- You will be responsible for the recruitment of apprentices. However, we can work with you to promote your opportunities via our website
- You pay apprentices at their normal rate whilst they are studying
- Apprentices require a workplace mentor who will oversee their development and coordinate projects and learning with the university tutor
