There are two employment routes available to schools recruiting a Sports Apprentice through Loughborough College.
- Direct Employment – Schools can legally employ their apprentice as a normal member of staff using their own HR procedures.
- IMPACT Employment – Schools can use IMPACT Apprenticeships as the host employer, undertaking all HR concerns for a fee.
Both employment routes are supported by Loughborough College to meet each school’s needs. Whichever route your school decides to take the initial recruitment and on-going tutorial support will remain the same.
