HM Government has launched the Redundancy Support Service for Apprentices which aims to support those affected by redundancy.
The Redundancy Support Service for Apprentices:
The Covid-19 outbreak has had a seismic effect on the economy, and that some apprentices have been made redundant without completing their apprenticeships, while others are at risk of redundancy. To help these apprentices the Department for Education have recently launched the Redundancy Support Service for Apprentices.
The service provides clear, accessible advice and guidance to individuals on the impact of redundancy, their options and next steps. There will also be opportunities to help redundant apprentices to identify new apprenticeship and employment opportunities, and, where they are eligible, complete their current apprenticeship.
The service is made up of three main elements:
- Providing apprentices with advice and guidance on the impact of redundancy
- Signposting apprentices to local and national support services
- An apprenticeship vacancy sharing service to make redundant apprentices aware of new opportunities
If you, or you are aware of any apprentices who have been made redundant, please visit Facing redundancy during your apprenticeship or call 0800 015 0400 to speak to an adviser.
