Partners and providers
Responsibilities of partners involved in Apprenticeships in Wales.
As apprenticeships are work-based training programmes, most of the training is ‘on the job’ at the employer’s premises. However, the rest will be provided by the employer’s training partner, whether they are a local college or a specialist learning provider.
The learning provider will provide a training mentor for the apprentice, to offer support and guidance. They will work with the apprentice to:
- help decide which apprenticeship is right for them
- explain the way that apprenticeships might work and if funding is available
- agree a training plan
- manage the training and evaluation
- ensure that national quality standards are met and deliver integrated, coherent training.
The Specification of Apprenticeship Standards for Wales (SASW) document sets out the minimum requirements to be included in a recognised Welsh Apprenticeship framework.
