can I leave an apprenticeship before it ends?
Apprenticeships are a great way to get into the workforce quickly and learn on the job. But, what if you want to leave before your apprenticeship is over?
It is possible to leave an apprenticeship before it ends.
The terms of the apprenticeship will be laid out in the contract that you sign when you start your job. You will need to decide if you are happy with the terms of terminating your apprenticeship. The best place to start would be to talk to the training company or college who are providing the qualification behind your apprenticeship.
Can I finish my apprenticeship with a different company?
Yes, it is possible to finish your apprenticeship with a different company, assuming the company is happy to continue sponsoring you to complete the your qualification. Thanks to the apprenticeships standard, it is possible to transfer an apprenticeship. This can be useful in instances where you want to move location, are having issues with the company, are offered a better salary elsewhere, or are made redundant mid-way through your apprenticeship.
