Apprenticeship Guidance & Documents

Learning and Organisational Development have produced the guidance to support managers and teams to understand the process of employing an Apprentice or supporting an existing staff member who wants to develop skills using an Apprenticeships standard.


The guides below provide overarching and general information about Apprenticeships and the Apprenticeship Levy funding. The aim of the guides is to help managers make informed decisions on whether their school/centre or directorate/department could support an existing/new staff member with Apprenticeship standard training, or consider recruiting an Apprentice as part of the team.
