I am Helen Betts and I started working for the South West Peak Landscape Partnership Scheme three months ago. As part of our bid we will be encouraging farmers to take on apprentices by paying for the additional training that the apprentices need eg tractor driving and spraying certificates. We will not be employing farm apprentices directly.
Does anyone have experience of supporting apprentices in this way? We would like to be included in the apprentice agreement and commitment statement that is usually just agreed by the employer, training provider and apprentice.
Thanks for helping
