Apprentice support

What support will I receive?

As an employee of the Council you will have many learning opportunities.

You will find out how you can build your skills during your induction. You will also learn:

  • how the Council operates
  • health and safety
  • computer skills and systems
  • equality and diversity
  • all about working culture

Your line manager and your colleagues will guide, support and mentor you as you work.

Support for apprentices with a learning difficulty or disability

If you have a learning learning difficulty or disability you may be able to get extra support. This will help you complete apprenticeship. 

To make sure you get the support you need:

  • talk to your training provider and line manager about your learning difficulty or disability
  • you do not need a formal diagnosis or evidence
  • be open and up-front about what you need - this will benefit you and the people you work with
  • have these conversations at an early stage
  • talk about how your condition affects you and the way you work and learn
