Why take on an Apprentice?

Not only do apprenticeships deliver real financial returns, they help to improve productivity for you and to be more competitive. Training apprentices is more cost effective than hiring skilled staff, leading to lower overall training and recruitment costs.

Depending on the type of role you require, an apprenticeship can be tailored to suit the requirements of your job role. This provides greater flexibility and ensures that an apprentice is being trained to meet the needs of your business and the role you require.

An apprentice can enter your business, as a novice or be an existing member of staff and you will quickly see their productivity increase, their knowledge expand and their capabilities strengthen.

Apprentices are often motivated, dedicated members of a team as they learn, earn and gain hands-on experience and will transfer new ideas and fresh thinking into the workplace.

Becoming an Apprentice

Apprenticeships are the perfect way to gain on-the-job experience, all whilst earning a wage with the benefit of gaining a qualification, that is not only focused on your chosen career and industry but is also hands-on and tailored to a working environment. If you’re the kind of person who likes to learn by doing, and you’re keen to start earning money then an apprenticeship could be for you.

There are also Functional Skills –Maths, English and ICT qualifications that you will gain (if needed) upon completing your apprenticeship.

Apprenticeships are split into four levels of qualification:

  • Intermediate-level apprenticeship (Level 2 GCSE)
  • Advanced-level apprenticeship (Level 3 A Level)
  • Higher apprenticeship (Levels 4 to 7)
  • Degree apprenticeship (Levels 6 and 7)

Apprenticeships can be in a direct care role such as a care worker or activities worker, or in a support role such as a business administrator or finance worker. Taking part in this structured development pathway can help you develop a rewarding and long-term career.
