What are apprenticehips?
Apprenticeships allow people to gain quality hands-on workplace experience at the same time as they work towards a nationally recognized qualification.
Mixing on-the-job and off-the-job learning ensures apprentices get the skills and knowledge they need in employment.
Apprenticeships also offer the opportunity to develop your skills in the sector you want to work in.
The benefits of apprenticeships for your business
Apprenticeships offer lots of benefits to businesses such as:
- Developing a workforce with the skills that are specific to your business
- Helping existing employees to pass their knowledge on to the next generation of employees
- Bringing new thinking and new skills into your business
- Encouraging a motivated workforce that helps you stay competitive
