Formal mentoring is an important aspect of apprenticeships; however, it is also informal mentoring - practices that are difficult to formally nurture - that plays a significant and effective role in supporting the overall wellbeing of an apprentice. This good practice guide is designed to help employers think about and provide work-based social support structures that may contribute to the health and wellbeing of young apprentices as they transition to the world of work.
