Background & Overview

Apprenticeships NI can give your employees the training and qualifications they need to get ahead and meet your business needs. The qualifications are set out in a framework and are available at Levels 2 and 3. They have been devised by industry bodies together with the Sector Skills Council and are therefore tailored to ensure they meet the needs of your industry.

There is an incentive payment available of £500 per candidate for employers whose employees successfully complete the Apprenticeships programme.

• be working a minimum of 21 hours per week (which includes time for ‘off-the-job’ training).

Many Northern Ireland companies have successfully trained their apprentices through Customized Training Services and the Apprenticeships programme and their businesses have reaped the benefits and seen an improvement in staff performance and general productivity.

Have you heard? The Department for the Economy (DfE) has developed an Apprenticeship Recovery Package for Northern Ireland that will channel financial support to local businesses to help the apprenticeship system respond to the impact of the COVID-19 crisis.
