This employment law guide explores the basics of apprenticeships and offers guidance on how to avoid common pitfalls.

Apprenticeships combine nationally recognised qualifications with on-the-job work experience, allowing individuals the opportunity to study whilst working and giving employers the opportunity to hone and train individuals in a style which suits their business. Apprenticeships are generally offered to school leavers or young people, however they can be offered to existing employees or older individuals who wish to retrain in a new sector.  There are broadly two forms of apprenticeship; the contract of apprenticeship and the apprenticeship agreement.
