the benefits of developing your workforce through apprenticeships

There are a number of benefits that companies of all sizes can receive through recruiting an apprentice.

  • Apprenticeship qualifications are tailored around specific job descriptions and this means the apprentice can work within your skills gap.
  • Most apprentices are eager, motivated and loyal to the company they invest in. They can have great ideas and can be in the know with the latest technology and events in the industry to help your business.
  • Incentives are available for companies recruiting apprentices aged 16-18.
  • Larger companies can use their Levy funding to recruit a new apprentice or up-skill current staff.
