What are the benefits of apprenticeships?

  • Suitable for new and existing staff: Apprenticeships are open to anyone from 16+ and there is no upper age limit to become an apprentice. 
  • Cost effective: Apprenticeships are a low-cost way to bring new talent into your organisation – recruitment is free and the training is funded either by your levy, or you pay just 5% of the bill (the government funds the rest)
  • Get the right set of skills for your company: What apprentices learn will be tailored to your business – the systems you use and the challenges you face

In addition, apprenticeships are a great way to create diverse and progressive workplace and improve productivity and staff motivation.
