What is an Apprenticeship Employment Organisation?

Hiring an apprentice or trainee through an Apprenticeship Employment Organisation (AEO) is an easy and cost effective way to take on an apprentice or trainee.
A business can hire an apprentice or trainee for the entire length of their training or simply for a period of time that suits the business.

An AEO will connect your business with the best apprentice and do all the HR, administration, payment of wages and management of training.

Hiring through an AEO is especially beneficial to small businesses who may find employing an apprentice or trainee as too much of a commitment for their organisation’s size, may be lacking in the resources to effectively manage an apprenticeship, or are unable to provide the full scope of on the job training needed for the full term of an apprenticeship or traineeship.

  • Advertising, shortlisting and interviewing candidates
  • Taking care of all paperwork ranging from employment contracts through to tax
  • Providing 24 hour support to both the business and the apprentice or trainee
  • Organising all training delivery and requirements
  • Pay wages
  • Mentoring your apprentice or trainee
  • Performance managing your apprentice or trainee if required
  • Monitoring skill development
  • Providing flexibility when things change in your business
  • Picking up all risks and responsibilities around the employment of your apprentice or trainee.
