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.
