Use the checklist to give your apprentice the best possible help

Prepare for your role as a supervisor

The apprentice is responsible for meeting targets, but to create a good relationship you need to support them.

Make an effort to catch up with each individual. Have keywords such as being thoughtful, have good principles and always keep your tone pleasant. This will permeate into the entire workplace.

Apprentices come with their own experiences and won’t do things in exactly the same way as you. See this as a strength and work as a team where you share experiences.

Don’t judge the apprentice for their shyness or language skills but give all individuals the same opportunity. You never know how much a person can develop or how quickly they can learn things.

The apprentice’s first day

Introduce the apprentice to the company. Start by introducing yourself and telling us about your role at the company. Talk to the apprentice about what your collaboration will look like.
  • What is important to think about?
  • Go through the tools and equipment with the apprentice thoroughly.
  • The different training stages, the pay scale and what’s required of the apprentice.
  • Let the apprentice ask questions and let them know that you’re always willing to answer questions throughout their apprenticeship. You’ll be the apprentice’s teacher during this period and teach them everything you know.

Tell them what a collective agreement is. It’s important that the apprentice knows their rights and obligations.
