Recruit an apprentice and transform your business by securing the skills you need now and in the future.



Wales has a highly successful Apprenticeship Programme, built in partnership with our Welsh businesses. We focus on providing great quality, the right skills pathways and the right level of support to help achieve economic durability.

Apprenticeships are a genius decision that can:

  • Enable cost-effective recruitment – you cover the apprentice’s wage and we cover the cost of training
  • Create a pool of talent – with a skilled, qualified workforce
  • Fill skills gaps – to meet demands now and in the future
  • Help your business grow –whether you choose to recruit, retrain or redeploy your workforce

If you are new to apprenticeships, you can register your interest via the Expression of Interest form and you will be contacted by an Employer Engagement advisor. Or you can contact a Training Provider, a full list of which can be found here.

An Employer’s Guide to Apprenticeships can be read here.
