The Apprenticeship Council which comprises representatives from business, trade unions, further education bodies and the Department of Education and Skills have been seeking not only to increase the range of professions available through the apprenticeship model, but also to create new progression pathways up to level 10 on the Qualifications framework. This has led to the development of a number of new occupational apprenticeships across a range of industries and professions including ICT, Engineering, Insurance, Finance and Hospitality.

KEY FEATURES OF NEW APPRENTICESHIPS

New apprenticeships are based on the same model comprising both workplace learning and formal learning in an educational institute. There will be a minimum of 50% on the job training with a suitably qualified professional in the particular industry. Academic learning can be delivered through a combination of online lectures, discussions and group sessions.

WHAT DO APPRENTICES GET PAID?

Apprentices on ‘New Apprenticeship’ programmes are employed and paid under a Contract of Apprenticeship and the employer pays the apprentice in both on-the-job and off-the-job phases. Salaries are set by individual employers and are commensurate with the industry rate for the job.
