One of the biggest benefits of employing an Apprentice is that it helps to create a loyal and dedicated workforce. The majority of apprentices are young school or college leavers, which usually means that they have lots of energy with which to learn the ways of your business. Coming into an industry with little or no experience allows you to develop your apprentice to suit the ways of your business without them bringing along bad habits or ineffective methods of working that you might have difficulty to change.
Over 130,000 businesses across the UK offer Apprenticeship places within their workforce because they recognise their effectiveness at increasing productivity and improving business performance. Recruiting apprentices enables employers to fill the skills gaps that exist within their current workforce. Apprentices begin to learn sector specific skills from day one; developing specialist knowledge that will positively affect any businesses bottom line.
Apprentices may not have any actual workplace experience, but they can offer a fresh perspective and new ideas.
Apprenticeships develop a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce.
