Bridging the skills gap: Supporting all employers to train the next generation

We launched the HomeServe Foundation in September 2020 with a clear vision to dramatically increase the number of apprentices in the UK. Our mission is ‘Making homes better, building better communities’ and our initial focus is supporting the growth of our nation’s skills, capacity and experience by encouraging and helping hard-working employers to take on apprentices in the construction, home improvements and repairs sectors.

Are you a small or large employer?

We’ve built the tools and resources that will help employers through every step of employing an apprentice. Please review the video below to understand if you are classed as a small or large employer and use the tools to begin your journey empowering your business by employing apprentices.

How we help apprentices

We believe that by supporting employers and encouraging them to consider the possibility of employing and training an apprentice, it will lead to more apprenticeship opportunities being created and filled. We have developed tools that will allow apprentices to find good training providers as well as clear, concise information about their apprenticeship journey.

Why we are here

We think it’s important to build the workforce of the future. HomeServe has been employing and training apprentices for many years from its market-leading and industry-approved Apprenticeship Training Academy in Nottingham. We also understand what it is like for small businesses and the skills they need because HomeServe also owns the largest online platform for trades businesses in the UK, Checkatrade.

Flexi-job apprenticeship will allow agencies to be the apprentice’s employer for the duration of their apprenticeship while placing the apprentice with other host employers for short term placements. This will enable apprentices to move between businesses as they complete their apprenticeship, while remaining employed throughout by the agency.
