Apprenticeship Scheme

For an employer who wants new entrants (Trainees) and / or a cost effective staffing solution, the SJA GROUP Apprentice and Graduate service allows the employer to achieve both progression and cost effectiveness in their staffing.

Unlike hiring temporary staff or spreading workload internally, these services provide quality, work ready new entrants and then trains them in their chosen field to quickly add significant and cost effective value to the business. We also offer a consultancy service to enable the employer to establish and operate their internal Apprenticeship Scheme which enhances the value of their company.

SJA GROUP offers two Apprenticeship recruitment packages; The Hosting Model and The Direct Employment Model. The Hosting Model is our most popular service:

  • SJA GROUP employs the Apprentice on your behalf and pays them weekly through our Apprentice payroll system
  • We invoice you monthly in arrears for the salary and employment costs of your Apprentice Once your Apprentice has completed their training you can choose to employ them directly.
  • If as a business you are unable to employ the Apprentice for the full duration of the Apprenticeship, SJA GROUP will take back the Apprentice and place them elsewhere at no cost to you.
  • If the Apprentice leaves your employment for whatever reason, SJA GROUP will find you an immediate replacement


  • Free introduction of a candidate who we have trained for at least 6 weeks and therefore they are a known entity to us
  • At least a one year training programme incorporating not only the accredited learning content but also the employer’s content, creating a truly bespoke training solution
  • Cost effective service utilising Government funding wherever applicable
