There are many benefits to being involved with the National Apprenticeship scheme, such as the acknowledgement that you are providing the first steps of a young persons' career.
An apprenticeship should be seen as a long term investment, with the aim of employing the apprentice as a full time employee, based on their performance during their training, on completion of the apprenticeship. As such, you will be involved fully with developing a young person's career.
Our selection process ensures that we only send candidates to you for interviews that appreciate and understand the opportunities being offered.
Government funding for employed people is generally only provided for apprenticeship programmes. Apprenticeships are available for all existing employees, subject to residency conditions. They are not restricted to those starting in their first job.
Moreover, the National Apprenticeship Service conducted research that found over 80% of people are more likely to use a business if it offers apprenticeships to young people!
Recruit an Apprentice
Apprenticeships offer businesses the opportunity to harness new and motivated talent.
The qualifications an apprentice gains will make sure that they have the practical skills and knowledge your organisation needs now and in the future. They not only learn on the job but also at one of our training centres, making sure they receive the proper training and support needed to help your business productively.
The National Apprenticeship Minimum Wage is £3.70 an hour, although many employers choose to offer more.
We work extensively with all of our candidates before you see them to ensure they are prepared and ready for the workplace. We take great pride in the fact that we are often complimented for the quality of our candidates.
In short, taking on an apprentice could prove one of the best business decisions you make. You gain a loyal workforce as well as increasing productivity and improved competitiveness, with a young person who has learnt the skills they need within your business to thrive in the future.
