How can I end an apprenticeship early?
If you think that you and your mentor are having difficulties or that the apprenticeship is not working, here are some things you can do.
We understand that there are times that things may not work out between an apprentice and a business. We suggest doing everything you can to fix the relationship, if possible, before ending an apprenticeship.
Ending an apprenticeship prematurely means that you will not get our certification or reference letter, and you won't be able to add this experience to your resume. If you feel you did enough work to receive a certificate, please reach out to us through our chat system. Keep in mind that we will have to review all the work you completed before deciding if you did enough to receive our certificate.
Apprenticeships can end for a variety of reasons:
- Not a good fit or different goals
- Unexpected changes in schedule
- Personal emergency
- Many more reasons
Regardless of the reason, we recommend reaching out both to the Acadium Apprentice Support Team and your mentor to end the apprenticeship professionally. PLEASE REMEMBER: Apprentices that simply “vanish” are permanently removed from our marketplace.
If you're really decided on ending the apprenticeship, you can end it in your settings. If you don’t know how to end the apprenticeship, simply contact us for assistance. Notifying your mentor and making sure you communicate the reason why you want the contract terminated will always be in your best interest.
