We know that apprenticeships can seem like a minefield, even if you're a seasoned pro, so we've put together some Apprenticeship FAQ's. We might not have covered everything, so if you have another question, just pop it into the contact form at the bottom of the page and we'll be in touch.


I’m considering hiring an apprentice, but what’s the benefit?

The benefits of hiring an apprentice are numerous! The benefits go way beyond staff retention and motivation, in fact, hiring an apprentice can even help improve your bottom line. Don't believe us?! We wrote a whole page on it. 

I’m completely lost, where do I start with hiring an apprentice?

We understand. The world of apprenticeships isn't always smooth sailing! We recommend grabbing a cup of tea, and taking a look at our "how to" page. 

How does the funding work for SME’s and Levy payers?

There's different funding options available to you depending on the size of your business and your payroll. Our funding page separates this down for you and will walk you through all the grants and funding available. 

What is EPA?

EPA stands for End Point Assessment, and it's exactly what it says on the tin. It's the point at the end of the apprenticeship where the apprentice is assessed on their knowledge. This can be with discussions, portfolios or presentations. 

What does “off the job” training mean?

Off the job training, or mandatory hours are planned hours every month where your apprentice will be learning new skills and knowledge to help them in their new role. This is planned and documented and counts towards their EPA
