What are Apprenticeships?
They are work-based training programmes designed around the needs of employers, which lead to national recognised qualifications. These national recognised qualifications are developed by Sector Skills Councils; these councils are made up of industry leading employers in their sector.
Apprenticeships ensure that your workforce has the practical skills and qualifications your organisation needs now and in the future. The mixture of on and off the job learning ensures that Apprentices learn the skills that work best for your business.
Why would I take on an Apprentice?
Employers all need a good, motivated workforce; but where can you find affordable, hard working staff that are willing to learn?
Apprentices make a valuable contribution to your business by enabling you to recruit and train new employees or train your existing staff.
Research has highlighted that employers offer Apprenticeship places because they understand the benefits that Apprentices bring to their business – increased productivity, improved competitiveness and a committed and competent work force.
