Apprenticeships

Skills for Justice works closely with the employers of the UK Justice, Community Safety, Legal Services and HM Forces employers, and as such, we are in a position to develop and update Apprenticeships that are fit for purpose for a particular group of workers or sector.

The National Apprenticeship Service has produced a definition of what an Apprenticeship is and some key indicators of a quality delivery model. Please visit the National Apprenticeship Service site for more information.

Apprenticeships are useful to any kind of organisation as it provides the following:

  • Candidates will undertake nationally recognised training that develops skills and knowledge
  • It increases the diversity of your workforce
  • Allows access to public funding for training

Apprenticeships can:

  • bring in new staff with fresh ideas and motivation
  • attract public funding to help with the cost of training 
  • develop loyalty in employees who support your company values

Typically, an Apprenticeship programme would include:

  • a structured training programme based on National Occupational Standards integrating skills training with on-the-job activity
  • functional skills training in Maths and English, ICT as required, along with job related qualifications
  • mentoring from experienced staff
  • around 12 – 24 months to complete depending on the job role
  • different levels of Apprenticeships to reflect the varying complexity of job roles
  • skills training usually delivered in-house or by a college

To help you maximise the potential of an Apprenticeship scheme we can develop new or existing training into an Apprenticeship framework based on your skills needs.
