Benefits for employers

Why have your Apprenticeship scheme approved?

  • Ensure that the apprentices gain a wide enough range of experience in engineering and business to enable them to become professionally registered as Engineering or ICT Technicians or have a good start towards Incorporated or Chartered Engineering registration.
  • Recruit fresh talent from a pool of ambitious individuals.
  • Raise the profile of your business by joining the IET’s approved apprenticeship scheme providers
  • It’s free to set up. All we ask in that apprentices become Apprentice Members of the IET*.

* It costs £20 per year or £50 for the duration of the course if an individual is paying; or £30 for the duration of the course if the organisation or Learning Provider pays for their apprentices by purchase order or company credit card.

How do I set up a scheme?

It’s really simple. Once you’ve contacted the IET, a member of our approvals team will visit your workplace to look at the design, content and assessment strategy of your apprenticeship and make sure that there are satisfactory quality assurance arrangements. They’ll also look at the level of support offered to the apprentice during their time on the scheme and when they graduate into the main workforce. If there are any gaps, we’ll be able to help.
