Supporting your apprentice
Taking on an apprentice is a two-way relationship and you can
play your part in helping them get qualified.
How can I help my apprentice?
Giving your apprentice experience of a wide variety of work and
providing them with opportunities to learn new skills, visit
customers and suppliers, or go to demonstrations and exhibitions is
the best way to help them.
It's also good to help them with planning work-based projects
and assignments and giving them access to any computer, software
and equipment where needed. If you provide in-house training,
giving your apprentice access to this and any other resources or
specialist information would be beneficial too.
The most important thing though is to give them as much
encouragement, advice and support as possible. This will give your
apprentice a chance to progress and recognise their
achievements along the way.
