The Redundancy Support Service for Apprentices

We know that the Covid-19 outbreak has had a seismic effect on the economy, and that some apprentices have been made redundant without completing their apprenticeships, while others are at risk of redundancy. To help these apprentices the Department for Education have recently launched the Redundancy Support Service for Apprentices.

The service provides clear, accessible advice and guidance to individuals on the impact of redundancy, their options and next steps. There will also be opportunities to help redundant apprentices to identify new apprenticeship and employment opportunities, and, where they are eligible, complete their current apprenticeship.

The service is made up of three main elements:

  • Providing apprentices with advice and guidance on the impact of redundancy
  • Signposting apprentices to local and national support services
  • An apprenticeship vacancy sharing service to make redundant apprentices aware of new opportunities

If you’ve been made redundant or think you might be made redundant in the future, you can use the service to get free advice, access local and national support, and find new opportunities. For more information visit Facing redundancy during your apprenticeship or call 0800 015 0400 to speak to an adviser.

The Redundancy Support Service for Apprentices

The Redundancy Support Service for Apprentices (ReSSA), launched by the Department for Education, provides clear, accessible advice and guidance to apprentices following redundancy, while supporting their next steps. It will help redundant apprentices to identify new apprenticeship and employment opportunities, and, where they are eligible, complete their current apprenticeship.

This service will enable individuals to access free online information and telephone support, helping to connect them with national and local support services, including financial, legal, health and wellbeing and careers advice. It will also share with apprentices details of new apprenticeship opportunities being offered by employers in their region.

ReSSA is a free service for any apprentice that is funded through the English apprenticeship system and has been made redundant or feels at risk of redundancy.

Apprentices can submit their details via an online registration form or through the Apprenticeship Helpdesk. The service will work with employers to identify new apprenticeship opportunities which redundant apprentices can apply for.

If you’ve been made redundant or think you might be made redundant in the future visit Facing redundancy during your apprenticeship or call 0800 015 0400 to speak to an adviser.

This service is part of the government's support for apprentices and the vital role apprenticeships will play in economic recovery and skills development.
