Employers! Are you interested in offering an Apprenticeship, but too busy to manage the process? Apprenticeship Training Agencies (ATAs) can help! Apprenticeship Training Agencies are a unique service which supports employers to recruit, arrange and host their apprentices. The Agency works with the employer to find a suitable apprentice for the vacancy, presenting only the most appropriate for interview.

The distinctive feature of the ATA model is that it is the ATA which acts as the apprentice’s employer and which places them with a host employer. The host employer pays the ATA a fee for the apprentice’s services; this fee being based on the wage agreed with the host and the ATA management fee.

ATAs can help busy small employers who wish to use their services to source, arrange and host their Apprenticeships. If circumstances change and the employer is unable to retain the apprentice the ATA will find alternative and appropriate employment for the apprentice giving them the reassurance that they can continue their Apprenticeship.
