What's an apprentice training provider? Why do I need one?

The training provider has the primary responsibility for providing all the off-the-job training, assessing your progress and supporting you during your apprenticeship. The Training Provider works with the employer to ensure any new apprentice receives:

  • an induction programme on starting
  • a complete and detailed training plan (including on-the-job training)
  • regular progress reviews
  • Opportunities to put into practice off-the-job learning so that they can achieve their qualifications/requirements of the the apprenticeship
  • mentoring and general support during the apprenticeship

The training provider will create a commitment statement which is part of the Apprenticeship Agreement. This ia an individual learning plan that the apprentice, employer and training provider all sign up too.
