An increasing number of employers are experiencing the benefits that apprenticeships can bring. Employing an apprentice gives someone a fantastic opportunity to grow and develop in a way that can also significantly benefit your organisation.
Apprenticeships are a way for employers to both recruit and train new staff – bringing in and developing fresh, highly committed ‘homegrown’ talent to a business. Apprenticeships can also be a cost-effective way of training your existing staff to ensure that the skills they offer meet your current and future needs.
From helping to close skills gaps to demonstrating to customers and existing staff that your company sees value in investing in people, there’s plenty to gain from apprenticeships:
- Introduce new talent to your business
- Upskill existing staff
- Improve staff morale and retention
- Increase employee numbers
- Send out a positive CSR message
- Save on recruitment costs
