Southwark Apprenticeship Standard
The Southwark Apprenticeship Standard is a new standard for quality apprenticeships in Southwark.
We’re committed to working with employers to make apprenticeships the best they can be. Whether you’re a sole trader taking on your first employee or a multinational rethinking talent recruitment, high quality apprenticeships are great opportunites to grow your workforce and meet the needs of your business.
The Southwark Apprenticeship Standard is based on ten years of experience delivering a highly successful scheme in partnership with some of our major contractors. The Standard addresses four key areas that are central to the success of any apprenticeship:
- Secure employment, with a minimum contract of 12 months
- Payment of the London Living Wage
- Quality training provision
- Mentoring and support
