16+ and Currently Employed
Apprenticeships are a great way to gain a nationally recognised qualification whilst you work. Qualifications are available in a number of subject areas and can be tailored to suit you and your employer. Apprenticeships help you improve your skills, knowledge and confidence, giving you all the equipment you need for your future. Most of the training is delivered in the workplace at a time to suit you and your employer.

This way our Tutors can assess you in your work environment and you don't miss out on getting paid. We have qualifications available at different levels (level 2 or 3) to suit you and your development. You will also gain qualifications in functional skills and a technical certificate.

Apprenticeships are a great way to develop the skills of a new employee or up-skill your existing workforce. There are a wide range of Apprenticeship qualifications available in a number of industry sectors to suit your business.

As an employer you can become involved in Apprenticeships in two ways:
Recruit an Apprentice
Recruiting an Apprentice is a great way of expanding your workforce with new talent. Apprentices can develop their skills to gain a Level 2 or 3 whilst carrying out their duties in the workplace. Recruiting an Apprentice is as easy as 1,2,3:

1. Provide a job description
2. We advertise, interview and shortlist for your consideration
3. You interview and select the Apprentice to join your business.

Once our Recruitment Advisors have found your perfect Apprentice and they are in post, a Work Based Tutor will carry out regular visits to support you and your Apprentice through their qualification.

Up-skilling Existing Employees
The Source also offers Apprenticeship courses for existing employees at all ages. Existing employees can develop their skills to gain a Level 2 or 3 qualification whilst carrying out their current duties in the workplace. You can even take this opportunity to expand the skills of individuals to take on new responsibilities.

Up-skilling your existing workforce with Apprenticeship courses is a great way to:
- Motivate your workforce
- Increase productivity with a skilled workforce
- Reduce skills shortages
- Access tailor-made courses with your business/sector in mind
- Succession planning
