A typical apprenticeship framework includes:
Apprenticeships are made up of a structured framework in which Webs Training Officers can advise you on the most appropriate units so that Apprentices are learning job related skills. This ensures that you, the employer, gets the most out of your apprentice and their qualification.
Employers may be eligible to receive a £1,500 apprenticeship grant. These grants are available to help small to medium sized employers (with less than 50 employees) who would not otherwise be in a position to do so, to recruit individuals aged 16 to 24 into employment through the Apprenticeship programme. Employers can claim support for up to 5 apprentices, who are new to Apprenticeships or haven’t enrolled a new recruit or existing employee onto an Apprenticeship programme in the previous12 months.

There are a number of ways that Webs can help employers find the right apprentices for your company. This includes:
Apprenticeship vacancies is the official job site for Apprenticeships in England and is managed by the National Apprenticeship Service. The system enables quality vacancies to be viewed and applied for nationally by thousands of candidates that register onto the system, making it easy for employers to attract and recruit suitable apprentices. Webs can support you by advertising and posting apprenticeship positions on the system on your behalf and sifting through applications to make the process more effective and simpler for you.
Through our own in-house programmes we have supported young people to achieve a level one qualification in furniture manufacturing and who are now ready to commence on a work placement supporting their progression to an apprenticeship.
This allows young people to spend time working with you at your premises on a work placement giving them the opportunity to develop their employability skills whilst working toward a nationally recognised qualification. This can be from 1 day per week to 3 days per week. As the employer you can ensure the work placement is right for your organisation before employing them onto an apprenticeship programme.
The new Furniture Manufacturing Standards have now been approved by Government for delivery. Eventually these are intended to replace all existing frameworks, WEBS will commence delivery of the new standards from 1 May 2017.
