Financial Services Professional Apprenticeships
Hiring an apprentice is a productive and effective way for any business to grow talent and develop a motivated, skilled, and qualified workforce.
Financial Services Apprenticeships are work based learning programmes designed around the needs of employers which lead to nationally recognised qualifications. Available to anyone of the age of 16 and above who meet the entry requirements, they are a way for young people and adult learners to earn while they learn in a real job, gaining a real qualification and a real future.
As well as Apprenticeships being a cost effective way to recruit and train new employees, many employers consider the framework to be a useful learning and development route for their current employees.Watch Explainer Video

How do I find an apprentice?
In the first instance, contact us. You may already have someone in your business you wish to put forward or we can support your search to find the best apprentice for you.
How will I fund an apprentice?
Apprentices must be employed on a PAYE basis. They cannot be self-employed.
We encourage Employers to pay a salary that they feel is fair and reflects the level of work and study undertaken and that will attract the best candidates to apply for your vacancy.
There is no cost to the employer for the actual tuition for apprentices aged 16-18. For those aged 19+, the Government will fund 95% of the tuition fees while the employer contributes just 5%. This makes apprenticeships a highly cost effective training solution.
How we support your business
Every year we enrol 100’s of Financial Services Apprentices with businesses, helping them to find the people with the skills they need for their companies to grow. We will provide support at every step of the way, with no recruitment fees.
