Redundancy support for apprentices

Information about support for apprentices who have been redundant or are at risk of redundancy.

From: Education and Skills Funding Agency

Being made redundant as an apprentice

Talk to your manager and training provider if you are being made redundant or are concerned about redundancy to get advice and support.

The government will fund your apprenticeship training for at least 12 weeks following redundancy to give you time to find alternative employment so that you can continue with your apprenticeship.

You may be able to continue and complete your apprenticeship, including taking your end-point assessment (EPA), even if you do not find a new employer if:

  • you have less than 6 months of training to complete


  • you have completed 75% or more of your training
