Employing an apprentice

4. Make an apprenticeship agreement

You must sign an apprenticeship agreement with your apprentice.

This gives details of what you agree to do for the apprentice, including:

  • how long you’ll employ them for
  • the training you’ll give them
  • their working conditions
  • the qualifications they are working towards

You can write your own apprentice agreement or download an apprenticeship agreement template.

Commitment statement

You must also sign a commitment statement with your apprentice and the training organisation.

It must include:

  • the planned content and schedule for training
  • what is expected and offered by the employer, the training organisation and the apprentice
  • how to resolve queries or complaints
