Free apprenticeship support for SMEs

Developing the right skills is vital for small businesses. Apprenticeships deliver great benefits, from improved staff retention and motivation to increased productivity. And our community of large businesses has pledged funds to cover the full costs of your apprentice's training.

We know there's so much to think about when considering apprenticeships. Workwhile can support you to make the right decisions for your business, and make the process more straightforward and less time-consuming.

We can help you to:

  • Understand the basics of apprenticeships, how they work and the benefits
  • Identify suitable apprenticeship opportunities for your business
  • Match your needs with the right apprenticeship standards
  • Find an apprenticeship training provider
  • Access funding to cover the full costs of your apprentice's training
  • Line manager training for those managing apprentices through our DevelopMentor programme
  • Join our free employer information sessions through our K² network
  • Think about how good work, employee well-being, diversity and inclusion, and progression can benefit your business
