4 INTRODUCTION TO APPRENTICESHIPS What is an Apprenticeship? An Apprenticeship is a real job with training that enables an individual to earn while they learn and gain nationally recognised qualifications. Hiring an Apprentice helps businesses to grow their own talent by developing a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce. How do Apprenticeships work? Through hiring an Apprentice a business will gain a competent employee who is rapidly able to offer skills and commitment. Typically an Apprentice will attend College one day per week and spend four days per week working and training in the workplace. The employer provides on-the-job training opportunities, while off-the-job training is arranged by Seevic College. We will produce a training plan for the Apprentice and manage regular reviews and assessments. Who can apply for an Apprenticeship? Anyone in England can apply for an Apprenticeship if they are aged 16 or over, eligible to work in England and not engaged in full-time education. Apprenticeships typically appeal to individuals who wish to: Achieve nationally recognised qualifications through work-based learning Further develop their existing career or change career Work towards achieving a higher level Apprenticeship or relevant Foundation Degree. How much does it cost to hire an Apprentice? Employing an Apprentice can be highly costeffective for businesses. Hiring an Apprentice provides the opportunity to train enthusiastic new and existing staff while the government contributes towards the cost of the learning and training. Your business will be responsible for paying the salary of the Apprentice, including the time they spend at College. The national minimum wage as of October 2014 is 2.73 per hour for Apprentices aged This is also the rate for Apprentices aged 19 and over for their first year as an Apprentice; after this first year they are required to be paid in accordance with the national minimum wage rate for their age.

5 HOW APPRENTICESHIPS WORK FOR BUSINESSES Apprentices add real value to businesses by offering opportunities to develop exciting new talent, reduce staff turnover and boost productivity.

Other benefits reported by employers include improved service delivery, the introduction of new ideas to the organisation, improved staff morale and better staff retention.

6 HOW WE SUPPORT BUSINESS Seevic College will work with your business before, during and after an Apprenticeship programme. We ensure that all our efforts are focused on meeting your business needs and the training and development needs of the Apprentice. Prior to the training programme we will: Hold an advisory meeting with you to discuss your business outcomes and training requirements Offer you a comprehensive recruitment service provided by our Business Development Team Provide you with accurate advice and guidance on the most appropriate training, which will provide flexibility to suit your business needs Provide clear information on content, duration, assessment requirements and the costs of hiring an Apprentice. At the start of the training programme we will: Provide a comprehensive induction including initial advice and guidance Provide information on content, timetable, assessment of progress, regularity of reviews, health and safety requirements and equal opportunities review Agree the learning content with you, including the selection of optional units which best fit with your business needs. During the training programme we will: Provide high quality training taking into account your business needs and an individual s ability Provide a professional and highly competent Delivery Team, who will have relevant vocational expertise Provide regular updates and reviews of progress for your Apprentice against agreed targets Provide a welcoming learning environment irrespective of race, religion, age, nationality, gender, disability or sexual orientation Monitor learner progress and attainment to help them to achieve their goal Provide Additional Learning Support where required Ensure completed work meets the requirements and standards of the awarding body. After the training programme we will: Work with you to evaluate the benefits of the training programme to your organisation within three months of completion Suggest relevant follow-up or new opportunities for additional development Agree appropriate progression with you and the Apprentice.

An Apprenticeship framework is the definition of requirements for an Apprenticeship programme. They ensure that all training providers and employers deliver consistently and to agreed standards. Framework element Competence Element - NVQ Knowledge Element - Technical Certificate Transferable Skills Element - Functional Skills Employment Rights and Responsibilities Element Personal Learning and Thinking Skills Element (PLTS) What it involves This is a nationally recognised vocational qualification (NVQ) which gives the Apprentice the skills needed to do a job. A Technical Certificate is a knowledge-based qualification which helps develop an understanding of the industry or role. These are practical, applied skills relevant both to young people and adult learners. The Apprentice will develop important employability skills such as communication, team work, problem solving and presenting skills. These skills could be Maths, English or ICT. Each framework must include a requirement for the Apprentice to develop knowledge and understanding about the world of employment. This provides a framework for describing the qualities and skills needed for success in learning and life. The framework comprises six groups of skills: independent enquirers, creative thinkers, reflective learners, team workers, self-managers and effective participants. Your views Seevic College operates a number of employer-led forums and events, held on a six-week cycle, providing businesses with the opportunity to have their say and provide feedback on a wide variety of issues.

8 EMPLOYER RESPONSIBILITIES In agreeing to employ an Apprentice, businesses are required to: Employ the Apprentice subject to your usual terms and conditions of employment Comply with the working time directive Carry out an initial induction to the workplace with the Apprentice Work with Seevic College to ensure that the Apprentice is able to put their learning into practice and develop their skills Be responsible for paying the Apprentice a wage or salary and treating them as you would any other employee Provide the Apprentice with time to learn and study by allowing them to attend training, supervising their practice and ensuring their health and safety Secure the mandatory industry and legal requirements for employees such as DBS checks, health and safety checks Fully support your Apprentice by participating in reviews every weeks throughout the duration of their programme Enable a College representative to undertake a health and safety assessment of the workplace before the Apprentice begins their training. 8 To find out more or ring

9 Health and safety requirements It is the responsibility of the employer to comply with all health and safety processes. All employers are required to inform Seevic College (either by telephone or ) of any accidental or non-accidental occurrences arising and resulting in serious injury to the Apprentice. Employer and public liability insurance All employers must ensure that all employed Apprentices are covered by the company policies of employer and public liability insurance. Safeguarding We provide each of our employers with a Seevic College Safeguarding Guide. This informs employers of the procedure should an Apprentice disclose sensitive or personal information or make an allegation about a colleague or manager within a business. Equality and diversity Seevic College celebrates cultural diversity and is committed to the promotion of equal opportunities in every aspect of our business. The College will therefore not tolerate any form of discrimination or harassment on the grounds of skin colour, race, national origin, gender, sexuality, marital status, religion, age, social background and special needs including disability. We therefore ask all employers to comply with our expectations and standards. Terms and conditions of employment It is a legal obligation to ensure that all employed staff have a contract of employment. Annual leave entitlement All employed staff including Apprentices accrue annual leave entitlement from the first day of their employment. This includes Bank Holidays such as Christmas and Easter. The minimum holiday entitlement is between five to six weeks paid holiday per year (28 days for full time staff). An employer can include Bank Holidays as part of statutory annual leave. Grievance and disciplinary procedures and polices An Apprentice is subject to the same terms and conditions of employment as other employees and therefore the above policies and procedures apply. In the event of a grievance or disciplinary procedure, Seevic College will only act in an advisory capacity in terms of learning and training. Termination and period of notice A notice period of one week must be provided for employees with continuous employment of more than one month but less than two years (unless a contract specifies longer). College complaints procedure If you wish to raise a complaint in the first instance please raise the matter directly with the Assessor or Lead Training Coordinator who will try to resolve the matter promptly. Alternatively, if the complaint requires escalation, please contact the Director of Commercial Development directly. Contact details for relevant individuals are printed on the back cover of this document. All complaints will be acknowledged within seven working days. Seevic College strives to continually improve its service delivery and we appreciate any feedback that will help us to meet this objective.

10 EMPLOYER CASE STUDIES Our Apprentices are so eager and motivated - it rubs off on the rest of our staff Thorne Smith MSB & Co Accountants Apprentices find it easier to understand the mindset of our company Chris Waller WSS Media MSB & Co Accountants have three offices in Benfleet, Canvey Island and Basildon. The firm have employed five Apprentices through Seevic College. Thorne Smith of MSB & Co Accountants says: We re an Accountancy practice which has been established for 10 years. We have 18 employees, and five are Apprentices. Because we are growing fast hiring Apprentices suits us. Our Apprentices are so eager and motivated it rubs off on the rest of our staff and fits in with our idea of being a pro-active firm. We ve had a lot of contact with Seevic College, and I ve been pleased with the relationship. I have already recommended to clients that they take on an Apprentice. WSS Media is a full service marketing agency based in Leigh-on-Sea providing creative branding and marketing advice to a wide range of clients. Chris Waller, Media Director, says: In the past I ve employed people and found you have to get them to adjust to how the company works. Apprentices are eager and find it easier to understand the mindset of your business; you can train them to work in a way that is most beneficial for you. Our Apprentice is great at his job. He s very confident and understands exactly what he wants to do. He s always first in the office each day it has a positive impact across the company. The interview process allowed me to get to know each of the candidates and what their different strengths were. I have no reservations when it comes to the service we ve had from the College; I can t fault it at all. Success Stories and Awards If you would like your business or Apprentice to feature as a Success Story in our future marketing materials please We also celebrate the success of our employers through an Employer of the Term award, awarded for outstanding business practices.
