Employing an Apprentice is Easier than you think

Employing an apprentice is easier than you think. There’s financial help available from the Government and advice and support from the Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Skills Hub once you’ve decided to take on an apprentice.

Apprenticeships have changed a lot in recent years and are an exciting option for both apprentice and employer.

Apprentices must be aged 16 or over but there is no upper age limit and they can be new or existing employees.

There are various levels of apprenticeship available, right up to degree and masters level.
