In smaller companies, often only the boss or education manager and one skilled worker are involved in training apprentices. In larger companies, several departments and persons can be responsible for the workplace training.
Some large companies have a regular partnership with a large supplier and/or with a school for training apprentices.
It's useful to make a list of people involved in training in your company, for example:
- The education manager
- Appointed trainers/apprenticeship coordinators
- Skilled workers
- Apprenticeship coordinator in a specific professional area
- Head of staff
List also "what", that is, which tasks each person is responsible for. Example Frode Laursen
The haulage company has 1,000 employees in all, and about 250 drivers. The company has had appointed driver instructors for about a year. They have now evaluated this. Dropout and resignation have, according to the manager, already fallen by 10%. This shows that it pays to let one man's workday be spent, to a great extent, receiving and following new employees and apprentices.
