What are the key factors of a successful apprenticeship?

It’s one thing to start up an apprenticeship scheme within your company and another to ensure that it is successful.

Drawing on experience, apprenticeship provider Arch has brought together five key components into what makes a successful apprenticeship:

  1. The apprentice and line manager have a good working relationship.
  2. During the first few weeks, there are already set tasks for the apprentice to get on with.
  3. The line manager is present and available for the first few weeks of the apprenticeship.
  4. The line manager provides clear and real time feedback.
  5. The line manager creates room for development within your company.
