Turning Your Job into an Apprenticeship

Congratulations! If you have already found a job then you may be able to convert it into an apprenticeship by following these three simple steps below.


Step 1:

You will need to speak to your employer and check that they are happy to discuss the idea of you becoming an apprentice. There is plenty of help and support available for them and they may be eligible for a grant, providing they have not started an apprentice in the last 12 months, see below.


Step 2:

Once you have spoken to your employer, ask them to contact the Wiltshire College apprenticeship team on 01249 465282 or apprenticeships@wiltshire.ac.uk and we will visit you and your employer to explain how the apprenticeship will work including the application process.


Step 3:

The Apprenticeship Grant for Employers of 16 to 24 year olds (AGE 16 to 24) is a £1500 grant to help businesses to grow by employing young people through the apprenticeship programme. Your employer may be eligible for the grant if they are willing to transfer you to a new full time apprenticeship job role (minimum 30hours per week). Ask your employer to visit the web page below for full details of the grant and eligibility criteria.
