This project has been set up to help any Apprentices on the Isle of Wight with information,
advice and guidance to help them through their Apprenticeship.
When talking about Apprenticeships we are referring to anybody taking a qualification at any level and by any means, through a University, College, Training Provider or distance learning.
The project has the support of the Training Providers and the Trade Unions.
The Trade Unions have offered their help free of charge in the first instance as they understand that there are a lot of people who have not had the benefit of knowing their services and the help they can give.
The project is fully funded and is intended to reach out to as many people who need it.
As well as the website, which will guide you on general subjects, there is also a telephone line which you can ring to speak to somebody who will help you with more specific problems (07951 750926 or 01983 532769).
If you need more support or more specific help and guidance than the initial help, that person will be able to put you in contact with one of the Trade Unions operating on the Island who will be able to support you, in confidence with your problem.
If this is a workplace problem, a Training Provider issue or any other issue directly concerning the Apprenticeship they can even give you one to one support by giving you the information to you need to sort it or by attending a meeting with you, if appropriate.
Should you have a problem outside the Apprenticeship but in your personal life, ie debt problems, problems with balancing work, study and home life, talk to us and we will be able to guide you through this stage of your journey or signpost you to somebody who will be able to help you.
Any information you give us will remain confidential.
Any help we give you in the first instance is free and you do not need to be a Trade Union Member to access it. However should you receive help from a Trade Union you may consider joining one and reaping the benefits that they can provide.
Please see our section on Trade Unions to help you.
Apprenticeships, at every level, are a valuable step in our learning journey which unlocks our potential to embrace the next stage in our journey of life.
