RHA launches apprenticeship guide

15 Nov 2023 Posted By Joe Scotting

The RHA has launched guidance to help operators run apprenticeships.

It sets out the benefits of taking on apprentices and examines the various options and good practice to help operators make the right choices to support their businesses.

‘A Guide to Running an Apprenticeship in England’ advises operators about an employer’s responsibilities, choosing courses and training providers, recruiting apprentices, monitoring progress and understanding the End Point Assessment.

The guide has been written to support commercial vehicle operators and logistics businesses in England.

Sally Gilson, RHA Lead for Skills, said: “With labour shortages a reality for many firms taking on apprentices can be a good way to invest in their workforces.

“Our guide will help operators better understand the options available to them and give them confidence in planning future recruitment.”
