Responsibilities of the Employer

As an employer you will need to ensure the apprentice is given a formal induction into their role and provide on-the-job training.

By Employing an Apprentice, employers have certain responsibilities they must follow:

    • An employer must be paying the apprentice at least the national minimum wage for apprentices.
    • The apprentice must have a signed Contract of Employment  prior to enrolment on the course.
    • All apprentices must receive the same benefits as other employees.
    • All employers must ensure apprentices complete 20% off the job training during the qualification.
    • The apprentice must be paid for both the hours they spend working and for those they spend studying during working hours.
  • The apprentice must not be asked to contribute financially to the cost of the training.
