Hiring an Apprentice

Apprenticeships are becoming an increasingly popular option for businesses, helping them to develop a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce and bringing about many business benefits – including improved skills levels, service, morale and productivity. Your apprentices bring fresh and innovative skills and knowledge to your business and are more likely to stay with an employer who has invested in them.

We work closely with you from the very beginning to focus on supporting you as the employer; whether that means recruiting the best candidate for your business and enrolling a learner in line with your timescales, or helping to tailor the programme to meet your needs and place a pre-existing member of staff. We work with your staff to help the development of the apprentices by supporting you in being a good mentor so that we can build a lasting relationship

Our flexible learning model allows you and your apprentice to progress through training at an individual pace and once they’ve qualified you can place another learner onto the course straight away; thanks to our roll-on-roll-off policy which means no set start dates. The high quality learning tools and materials created by our industry leading professional educationalists, coupled with 24/7 availability,  guarantee a premium training experience. 

Did you know that you could claim back the National Insurance Contributions for your Apprentices depending on their age? If your business has hired an Apprentice since 6th April 2016, who is aged under 25 and is enrolled on an Apprenticeship, you can claim back your National Insurance Contributions for them. Depending on the salary of your Apprentice, this could amount to a significant saving. As a non-levy organisation you are eligible for 10% with £1000 incentive payment for 16-19 year olds. 

We work with your schedule to set up phone calls with your Dental Educationalist every 3 weeks. This is coupled with regular 6 – 12 week visits by the Educationalist to help review, train and support your business and apprentice. Your Dental Educationalist will also be available to you via phone with a maximum 3 day response period to maintain quality communication and keep you informed every step of the way.
