Responsibilities and obligations
Employing an apprentice or trainee can be rewarding. It can strengthen your business by training people in skills that meet the needs of the business, while helping build the broader skills base needed to keep an industry strong.
After entering into a training contract and negotiating a training plan, employers have responsibilities to fulfil during an apprenticeship or traineeship, like carrying out an induction with the apprentice or trainee.
Read the ATIS-013 Employer responsibilities information sheet to learn more about your responsibilities, including notifiable events.
