Employers

Welcome to Calderdale Training.

Apprenticeships are Work Placed Learning Qualifications. They allow the Employer to develop their own workforce by assessing recognised and relevant qualifications for their employees or an Apprentice matched to them on their request.

Apprenticeships are developed in conjunction with Awarding Bodies and Sector Skills Councils made up of employers from industries that are there to ensure that young people get training in the skills that industry and employers need.

Calderdale Training currently offers Intermediate and Advanced Apprenticeships a variety of skill areas.

As an employer you must be able to commit to:

  • Providing the range and scope of work to match the requirements of the Apprenticeship framework for your skill area.
  • You must pay an Apprentice in compliance with the minimum of £3.30 per hour (current wage under the Apprenticeship Scheme) for a minimum of 30 hours per week.
