Apprenticeship Policies

Hello everyone,

I hope you are well.

I am currently looking ay apprenticeship policies and wondered whether any of you had a policy at your organisation. I am hoping to be able to distinguish between internal applicants and external applicants.

Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

My rough plan is:


1 – Link to Values (Excellence, Caring, Integrity, Team Work)

2 – Policy Statement

3 – Equality and Diversity Statement

4 – Scope

5 – Key Principles

6 – What is an apprenticeship (Include benefits??)?

7 – Levels of training

8 – Roles and Responsibilities (Applicant requirements)

9 – Pays and Pension

10 – Aims and Outcomes

Thank you,

  • Hi Mark

    I don't have anything I am afraid although a quick google did lead me to finding some public sector apprenticeship policies on line which you could reference.

    Also if you are a member of XPertHR or HR Inform, they might have something too.

    I hope this helps!


  • Hi,

    We have some high level information on our website for reference.

    The applicants could simply be distinguished by "ticking a box" identifying whether they are a "current employee". The rest of the application/interview would assess their suitability regardless of their employment origin. There may be a budget impact depending on the age and available funding for the applicant and this may vary whether they are internal or not however would in no way influence their suitability.

    Good luck.


    • Hi Gary,

      Best wishes,
