What responsibilities come with taking on an apprentice?

Apprenticeships impose a heavy training duty on the employer, and if the employer can no longer train an apprentice in the relevant type of work, that will be a breach of contract. It is more difficult to dismiss an apprentice than other staff. If an apprentice's contract is broken, the apprentice is entitled to remuneration and benefits to the end of his or her apprenticeship and damages for the employer's failure to train him or her.
