Apprenticeships are available for people aged 16 years plus. From June 2017, Graduates have been able to undertake an apprenticeship as long as it is at a higher level than their current degree or in a significantly different subject area.

Apprenticeships bring businesses many benefits:

  • A highly motivated and responsive worker, qualified on completion of their training scheme.
  • A great way to attract new people into the workforce, enhancing diversity.
  • Bring new transferable skills to the established workforce.
  • Provide recognised career development and progression routes.
  • Relevant training designed by employers and technical experts.
  • A way of meeting skills shortages and reducing staff turnover.
  • Provides an opportunity for existing staff to gain supervisory experience.
  • Funding is available from the Government for the training programme and employer grants can be accessed from Local Authorities, including West Sussex County Council’s Apprenticeship Levy Transfer
