What do they provide?
Apprenticeships help your organisation by providing an opportunity to employ and train fresh talent. They can be used to develop your existing workforce and overcome skills shortages and recruitment costs.
One of the main benefits of taking on apprentices is that it helps create a dedicated, loyal workforce. The majority of apprentices are school or college leavers that can offer new ideas and a fresh perspective on things. You have a chance to train and mould enthusiastic young people into valued and productive employees. Furthermore, they will appreciate the knowledge and expertise that is being passed onto them and feel a sense of loyalty to your company.
