What is an IAG apprenticeship?
The Level 4 Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) Apprenticeship is a higher qualification, awarded by City and Guilds. It's work-based and fully funded by the Welsh Government.
Information, advice and guidance are different types of support your people can offer to their colleagues and to your clients. It refers to relaying facts, making personal professional recommendations, or providing leadership and direction.
The IAG apprenticeship accelerates support abilities within your organisation. Whether your people are handling factual queries, or offering assistance based on their professional experience, the higher qualification will give them the agency and authority to advise with confidence.
Employers are awarded up to £4,000 for each apprentice they recruit*
*The Welsh Government employer incentive promises £4,000 for every apprentice recruited who are between 16-24 years old and up to £2,000 for every apprentice over the age of 25.
Who is the IAG apprenticeship for?
The IAG qualification is suitable for new or existing employees, who need to develop, update and accredit existing skills. It's also a training tool that offers progression into higher-level roles or education.
The IAG apprenticeship consists of carefully selected qualifications that provide the skills and knowledge required to be successful in an advice and guidance role, in the context of your organisation.
The qualifications are tailored, so it meets the specific needs of your organisation and the development requirements of your people.

What is the eligibility criteria?
Welsh Government funded Apprenticeships are open businesses of every shape and size. The full eligibility criteria can be found on the Welsh Government's website.
Your business must complete a health and safety appraisal, conducted by us, during a visit to the place where your Apprentice will work and learn. Once complete, it's valid for four years.
Welsh Government funded apprenticeships are available to anyone over the age of 16 living in Wales.
As it's a Higher-Level Apprenticeship, equivalent to degree level, you will need relevant experience to complete the qualification. Although, you don't need any other qualifications to evidence your experience.
