Probationary periods are built into training contracts as a way of allowing apprentices, trainees and their employers to withdraw from the apprenticeship or traineeship should either party decide it is not for them.
If you want to withdraw, you must notify your apprentice/trainee in writing. (Likewise, if the apprentice/trainee wants to withdraw, they must notify you in writing.)
Note that probationary periods cannot be extended.
Employers must notify Regulation and Contract Management of the withdrawal in writing within seven days; they can either write a letter or use the Withdrawal application form.
Once actioned, Regulation and Contract Management will confirm your withdrawal from the training contract in writing.
