Apprenticeship programmes are work-based learning frameworks designed around the needs of a business, which leads to a nationally recognised qualification. You can use apprenticeships to train both new and existing employees. Funding may be available.
The AMRC Training Centre will:
- Recruit an apprentice or support your existing staff into apprenticeships.
- Provide marketing literature to your staff where required.
- Help you decide which apprenticeship is right for you and your employee.
- Explain the way that apprenticeships might work for you and what level of funding is available.
- Agree a training plan with you and your apprentice.
- Provide support and guidance to organisations that have not previously employed apprentices or who do not have the infrastructure to develop their own in house learning activities.
- Manage the training and evaluation.
- Ensure that employers are fully informed of learner progress and results through on line tracking.
- Ensure that national quality standards are met and deliver integrated, coherent training.
