ApprenticeshipsNI is a work-based programme designed around the needs of employers that offers recognised training and qualifications to new and existing employees taking on new roles that require lots of training and development. The programme offers a wide range of apprenticeships at Level 2 and Level 3.

Apprenticeships are open to new employees or existing employees taking on a new role within a Northern Ireland based company.

Your apprentice needs to:

  • be the minimum school leaving age in Northern Ireland;
  • be about to take up paid employment as an apprentice with a Northern Ireland based company, or be an existing employee in a Northern Ireland based company who is about to undertake a new role that requires significant training and development;
  • employed by national companies that have operations in Northern Ireland who are employed at least 50 per cent of their time in Northern Ireland and completing their director training in Northern Ireland with an approved training contractor;
  • be permanently contracted to work a minimum of 21 hours per week (which includes time for 'off-the-job' training);
  • meet the entry requirements of their chosen occupation; some apprenticeships require, for example, General Certificates of Secondary Education (GCSEs).

An apprenticeship is a work-based training programme, most of the training is 'on-the-job' with you as the employer. The rest is provided 'off-the-job', one day a month.

All of the Level 2 and Level 3 apprenticeship qualifications are set out in a framework and are available at Levels 2 and 3. They have been developed in liaison with industry representatives and are therefore tailored to ensure they meet the needs of your industry.

The success of Northern Ireland's economy depends on it having a motivated and skilled workforce. By engaging a young person through Training for Success you can play your part in achieving this goal while helping them to progress and maximise their potential.

What is Training for Success?

  • help them on the road to employment;
