Employer Information

Want to find out how Apprenticeships can improve the skills of your workforce?

Are you looking for a risk free way to recruit and train new staff?

Would you like help with the costs of training school leavers and other new recruits?

Apprenticeships can provide a cost effective way to improve the skills base of your business and DMT's Apprenticeship programmes can help with the costs of recruiting and training staff.

Training for 16-18 year olds is fully funded with no cost to you.  The government expects employers to contribute up to 50% of the costs of training adults aged 19+ but DMT operates a flexible charging policy* to take account of the different needs and circumstances of employers to try to make sure lack of funding won’t stop you improving your skills base. 

We provide:

  • Apprenticeship training in a range of skill areas (see DMT's Apprenticeship Offer)
  • help with initial wage costs and tailored training pre-/post-employment to facilitate recruitment
  • free vacancy advertising, and matching and recruitment services
  • pre-Apprenticeship programmes, work trials and work placements, to help make sure you get the right person with the right skills and potential to meet your business needs
  • unique off-the-job skills training facilities in our work-based training centres and work projects, which provide real preparation for the workplace and specific tasks

If you're interested in taking on an Apprentice (including semi-skilled Apprentices ready to move on) or using Apprenticeships to train your staff here's how we can help -

  • Contact us to find out more about our Apprenticeships offer and how it can help you recruit and train staff in a  cost effective way.
