It can often be a challenge to find the new talent that is needed for businesses to meet this demand. Apprenticeships can be a great way of training employees to fit your company perfectly.
So, what can Apprenticeships do for your business?
Motivate your workforce and lower your staff turnover
Apprentices tend to be eager to learn and become loyal to the company that employs them.
Subsidies in funding and suggested rates of pay mean that taking on an Apprentice is a more cost effective way of hiring staff. This will help to reduce overall training and recruitment costs
What your business needs
Apprentices receive training both in the workplace and with us at college. The skills they learn are based specifically on your requirements as an employer.
Apprentices can be a great way of bringing new eyes, fresh ideas and enthusiasm to the business.
Business as usual
Their training programme is designed around your company and its schedule meaning there is very little disruption to the working day.
Fill skills gaps and shortages
We know that companies can struggle with an ageing workforce. The Apprenticeship programme helps to combat this by enabling you to train younger staff who often become long-term employees.
