Supported by National Apprenticeship Service

Apprenticemakers is an online community developed to help apprentice employers across the country make connections and ask each other questions about the benefits and challenges associated with recruiting apprentices.

Specialities: Peer to Peer support for Apprentice employers
Area Served: National / West of England

Apprenticemakers is for business owners and managers that have taken on apprentices in their business, or are interested in doing so. Its key focus is to encourage peer to peer support and experience sharing between businesses.  The Apprenticemakers community aims to support a greater take up of Apprenticeships amongst small and medium businesses (SME's) and has been developed following a recommendation in the Holt Review to support peer to peer mentoring between employers. It is a project grant assisted by the National Apprenticeship Service (NAS) and led by the Small Firms Enterprise Development Initiative (SFEDI).

The National Apprenticeship Service (NAS) supports, funds and co-ordinates the delivery of Apprenticeships throughout England.

SFEDI supports enterprising know-how for enterprising people and is the UK government recognised standard setting body for business enterprise and enterprise support in the UK.
