What are the benefits?
Training is an investment in the future of your company.
Apprenticeships have moved on from what they used to be and are an exciting option for both apprentice and employer. You can now employ apprentices at all different levels, from school leavers to people that want to further their careers or change career direction completely. An apprentice can be aged 16 or 100 plus!
As an employer, you can currently get additional help with funding an apprentice from the government.
An Apprenticeship is a recognised path designed to give the apprentice and their employer the best possible tool for learning. The apprentice benefits from nationally recognised qualifications, practical experience and real wages. The employer benefits from funded training places, the support of SETA throughout and, the result, a skilled and competent employee.
Apprentices bring enthusiasm and a fresh perspective, so it’s no surprise that according to GOV.UK 86% of employers say they make their business more productive. They can bring technical skills vital to business performance and growth.
They also bring opportunity; to attract new talent, offer progression and develop a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce. They can also help lower recruitment costs, 75% of apprentice employers have found this to be the case and 80% say that apprenticeships will play a bigger part in their future recruitment plans.
