The only time you will need to pay anything to ITEC is if your apprentice undertakes professional qualifications as part of their programme or if the apprentice is aged 19 and above on the day that they start. This would be discussed with you prior to making an offer to an apprentice.
The first thing you need to do is contact us. We will arrange a meeting with yourself and the apprentice and try and resolve the issues. We will agree a plan of action and a time frame for improvement. If the improvements are not met then we would look at ending the programme or disciplinary action – this would also be in line with the terms and conditions of your employment.
Again this will depend on the type of programme. Some apprentices attend weekly and for others it is every 6 weeks. You would be expected to allocate them some time towards their studies each week which they would match at home.
They will have regular meetings with their assessor and or tutor – some of these might be held at the college. In addition to this they will have reviews that are carried out at 12 weekly intervals – the line manager will be required to attend these meetings.
