What is an apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship gives you the option to upskill an existing employee or employ someone new to work within your business and study for a qualification. An apprenticeship is a great way of providing on-the-job training,  offering a cost-effective solution to recruiting and upskilling talent within your business.

Why take on an apprentice?

Taking on an apprentice gives you the flexibility to instil the skillsets required for your business. Investing in an apprentice gives you total control over the training, development opportunities and  knowledge that is shared with the individual, enabling you to fill gaps and mould the apprentice into your ideal employee.

Apprentices can either be new hires or part of your existing workforce, giving you the autonomy to diversify and grow your business on your terms.
