How do I hire an apprentice?

We suggest that you consider the following points when deciding whether an apprenticeship is best for your organisation:

  • Where is there a need for additional resource in your organisation?
  • Who will be the mentor for your apprentice?
  • Will you need to invest in any extra facilities to accommodate your apprentice?
