Apprenticeships for Business

Build your business
 by mentoring

Mentor an apprentice for three months as they take marketing activities off your plate. They get hands-on training, and you free up time for higher-value business activities.

Still have questions?

  • Where do the apprentices come from?

    The apprentice candidates come from all over the world, but we keep the locations consistent with the mentors on the platform. 80% of our mentors are in North America, so we keep 80% of the candidates from North America as well.

  • Are the apprentices vetted?

    Yes. Every apprentice must submit an application before joining Acadium that is reviewed by the Acadium team.

  • What's involved in mentoring an apprentice?

    Mentoring an apprentice takes 1-2 hours a week where you spend time with them providing guidance, answering questions, giving them tips and tricks, or even letting them watch you work on a screen share. A lot of the things you would do with a regular employee, but with a little more time and attention.

  • Can I hire apprentices?

    Yes. Hiring your apprentice after the apprenticeship is entirely free.

  • Can I cancel an apprenticeship if it doesn't work out?

    Yes. Just email our customer support team and we’ll sort out your cancellation. Once your apprenticeship is cancelled, that position opens up again and you can refill it immediately with a new apprentice. You have 3 open positions as part of your membership.
