Screwfix launches guide to taking on apprentices

Screwfix has launched a new guide to help tradespeople understand how to hire an apprentice.

Screwfix launches guide to taking on apprentices

The free ‘Your Guide to Hiring an Apprentice’ booklet is available in Screwfix stores across Scotland.

Developed with national skills body Skills Development Scotland, the pocket sized guide was released by Screwfix in conjunction with the Minister for Employability and Training Jamie Hepburn in response to research revealing that tradespeople want an increase in the availability of skilled workers through the encouragement of apprenticeships, as well as help in understanding how to take apprentices on.

Screwfix said a survey of its trade customers showed that tradespeople have little or no experience of taking on apprentices, with only 14% of Screwfix customers having employed an apprentice in the last year.

Graham Bell, operations director of Screwfix, said: “We have developed this guide to help tradespeople who have little or no experience of apprentices. Whether they’re looking to find out a bit more about who to hire an apprentice through, or the financial support available to them to help with taking one on, we encourage interested tradespeople to pick up their free guide from one of our 31 stores in Scotland now.”
