Grow your business with an apprentice this Spring

Grow your business this Spring – apprenticeships are extremely valuable for all kinds of businesses.

If you’re a levy-paying employer, apprenticeships are an opportunity not to be missed! They’re a great way to attract talent to your business, train your team and get a real return on investment from your levy payments.

If you’re a small business, apprenticeships offer huge benefits that far outweigh the initial investment – it’s why they’ve been taking industries such as childcare, health and social care and dental nursing by storm!

So how do apprenticeships work? 

Combining on-the-job training with off-the-job learning, apprenticeships are a technical alternative to university degrees. Apprentices learn practical skills alongside academic knowledge, so they often make the most productive employees.

Why should I invest in apprenticeships? 

Apprenticeships bring big benefits to your business – whether you use them to attract new talent or training your existing team.

Grow your own talent

  • By business for business: The new apprenticeship programmes are designed by businesses for businesses, so apprentices develop the specific skills and knowledge they need to progress in their occupation.
  • Adding value: Apprentices do real jobs and make a real difference from day one – adding value back into the business.
  • Apprentices bring new thinking and fresh ideas into the workplace, helping the rest of the team step-up and get things done.
  • Tailored skillset: Apprentices learn the specific skills your need in your business rather than a generic course, so they’re up to speed as soon as they qualify.
  • Your future workforce: Apprentices are highly skilled recruits  who will form the next generation of your workforce and take your business forward.

Grow your existing team

  • Upskill your team: Apprenticeships give your current employees the opportunity to learn new skills, progress their career and support the growth of your business.
  • Tailored learning: You can fill your skills gap in-house by tailoring learning to your specific business needs.
  • Boost team morale: Investing in training increases the talent in your team, boosts employee morale and improves staff retention rates.
  • Develop skills: Current employees can mentor new apprentices which promotes the spread of vocational and academic knowledge throughout your organisation.
  • Future proof your business: Employees who have completed an apprenticeship are the cream of the crop, and with the right support, they could become the future leaders of your business.
