How does Nescot support businesses that take on apprentices?

How will Nescot support me if I decide to employ an apprentice?

One of the benefits of taking on an apprentice through Nescot is that you'll get extensive support from a dedicated team who have a wealth of experience in supporting apprentices and employers.

If you want to take on an apprentice but don't know where to start, the apprenticeship team and our on-site Business Centre can help. Our staff are dedicated to helping match employers with vacancies to the right students. The comprehensive service is free to employers and students, and we also place students in full and part-time jobs and work experience placements, as well as in apprenticeships.

The Business Centre can help you with the whole recruitment process:

  • Defining the skills you need an apprentice to have;
  • Advertising your vacancies to Nescot students;
  • Finding and screening recruits;
  • Arranging interviews to your specifications;
  • Organising job offers for you; and
  • Preparing new employees and offering them ongoing support once they've started work.

The comprehensive level of service and support makes the whole process easier and simpler, both for you and your new apprentice, and removes any barriers you might have had against employing an apprentice.

Once your apprentice has started work, you'll be supported by our apprenticeships team until your new recruit is fully qualified. Our advisors will give you all the support you need, and our highly-qualified occupational experts will visit your workplace to assess the apprentice and support you both.
