What Happens At The End Of An Apprenticeship

So you’ve nearly completed your apprenticeships, so what happens at the end of an apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships constitute employment, and apprentices are treated the same as everyone else.

To guarantee that apprentices have the same employment rights as any other employee, they should be issued an apprenticeship agreement (a contract of employment) from the start. After finishing their apprenticeship, an apprentice should remain with the organisation and, in some instances, be offered the option to advance to a higher-level apprenticeship.

Suppose the employer cannot offer continued work after the apprenticeship. In that case, you may be given a fixed-term contract.

You should expect the employer to help apprentices seek other employment and, at the very least, to conduct a leaving interview.
