The business benefits
Apprenticeships are a great way to harness fresh young talent in to your organisation, increase productivity and the competency of your work force.

The benefits of apprenticeships are becoming increasingly obvious to more and more businesses. It’s a fact that apprenticeships develop a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce. Businesses that offer apprenticeships view them as beneficial to their long-term development.

According to the British Chambers of Commerce, most employ an apprentice to improve the skills base within their business. Employers have the opportunity to attract new talent, offer progression and develop a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce. Also, by offering Apprenticeships, businesses have the opportunity to build a pool of high-quality future recruits for their sector, while helping young people take their first steps toward employment.

The main rules to Apprenticeships

  • the apprentice must be employed in a real job; they may be an existing employee or newly hired
  • the apprentice must work towards achieving an approved apprenticeship standard or apprenticeship framework
  • the apprenticeship training must last at least 12 months
