Apprentices that have been made redundant

ApprenticeThis article sits within the Apprentice section

We know that the coronavirus pandemic is leading to some people losing their jobs. Contact your training provider if you’ve been made redundant.

Education and Skills Funding Agency are working with training providers to help apprentices find other employers and continue with their:

  • apprenticeships
  • end-point assessment

We will fund your training for at least 12 weeks following redundancy to give you time to find alternative employment. Through our new vacancy sharing service we can provide you with details of employers who have opportunities available and want to hire redundant apprentices.

You may be able to continue and complete your apprenticeship, regardless of whether you find a new employer if:

  • you have less than 6 months training remaining, or
  • you have completed 75% or more of your training
