With everyone except key workers being encouraged to work from home, this has had ramifications. It’s also brought into question issues concerning apprenticeships, both for employers and apprentices.
Work is one of the areas that has been affected the most through the lockdown introduced to try and stem the coronavirus pandemic. With everyone except key workers being encouraged to work from home, this has had major ramifications. It’s also brought into question certain issues concerning apprenticeships, both for employers and apprentices themselves.
Obviously, the ideal is for as many apprenticeships as possible to carry on if possible, albeit in ways that meet the guidelines now in force. Therefore, certain flexibilities have been introduced which, in turn, have given rise to a number of questions.
You will find detailed information from the Education and Skills Funding Agency if you follow this link which covers all of these areas.
For employers/training providers
These are just a few of the many topics that are covered here. There is also a very useful FAQ section that should answer the great majority of questions.
