So you’ve decided you’re ready. Now it’s time to go out there and find your apprentice!
Finding the right apprentice requires some thought, so here are some tips to help you get the right person for you and your business.
Your new apprentice will need to have either:
While many apprentices learn while on the tools, some apprentices will take a course before becoming an apprentice.
Do you want an apprentice who has done a pre-trade course, or do you want them fresh so you can train them your way from the start? The choice is yours.
If your workload is patchy or you don’t want the responsibility of managing your own apprentice, there are companies that will let you hire an apprentice to suit your needs. Examples include The Apprentice Training Trust (ATT), The Electrical Training Company (ETCO) and Masterlink.
