What is an apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships are a mix of learning at work and off-the-job learning. The employer pays the apprentice a wage and the government pays for most or all of the training. Apprenticeships allow you to bring new talent through the ranks and to equip your team with the skills your organisation needs to succeed.

A new starter or an existing member of staff can become an apprentice and you get up to £9,000 of training to skill them up. The apprenticeship usually lasts between 12-20 months.

How will it work?

StreetGames Training Academy will work with you to find the most appropriate support for the individual and your organisation. Most of the training is on-the-job, working with a mentor to learn job specific skills.

Employing an apprentice

An apprentice can be of any age and employing one is just like employing any other member of staff. They should be employed for at least 30 hours per week and have a contract of employment for the length of time needed to complete the apprenticeship training – between 12 and 20 months.

During this period, the StreetGames Training Academy will provide the necessary off-the-job learning. Government guidance for employers can be found below.
