Redundancy Support Service for apprentices:
To support apprentices who have been made redundant, or who are at risk of redundancy, the Redundancy Support Service for Apprenticeships has been introduced on 1st August.
The service will provide advice and guidance to individuals on the impact of redundancy, their options and next steps. They will also help redundant apprentices to identify new apprenticeship and employment opportunities, and, where you are eligible, complete your current apprenticeship.
The service is made up of three main elements:
. Providing apprentices with advice and guidance on the impact of redundancy
. Signposting apprentices to local and national support services
. An apprenticeship vacancy sharing service to make redundant apprentices aware of new opportunities
An employer who would like to recruit a redundant apprentice or offer new apprenticeship opportunities should visit the website: web link or call 0800 150 600.
Apprentices should visit the website: web link or call 0800 150 400.
