You can progress further in your chosen career by becoming an apprentice in your current workplace.
Apprenticeships not only benefit you, but also your employer. However, we understand it can be difficult to begin the conversation.
The more information you gather, the more likely you are to convince your employer to take you on as an apprentice. We recommend that you:
- explore our courses and find one that fits your current role and development needs
- understand the type of skills you'll be learning
- consider how your new skills will benefit your work, team, and business
- explore our employer case studies and apprentice stories to understand the business benefit of an apprenticeship
Talk to your employer
Whether you’re having the conversation with your employer in person, virtually or over the phone, it’s important that you highlight to them:
- why you want to develop your skills
- how an apprenticeship would enable you to upskill and improve
- how taking on an apprentice will benefit their business
You can also refer to our employ an apprentice pages. They explain in greater detail the benefits and funding process for employers.
What happens next
If your employer has agreed to take you on as apprentice, you can search our courses which detail how you can start your apprenticeship. You will then apply for the apprenticeship through your employer.
If you’re having trouble encouraging your employer or you're unsure where to start, contact us and we can talk you through the process.
