WHY AN APPRENTICESHIP

Apprenticeships can bring a wide range of benefits to your organisation.

Building a talent pipeline

Apprenticeships are a great way to get specific skill sets into your organisation. With apprenticeships tailored to specific roles you know they will get relevant training to meet those needs

Staff retention

Retention levels can be higher with apprentices. They have chosen to learn on the job and repay the investment you make in loyalty

Developing existing staff

Apprenticeships are no longer about getting young people into junior roles. With higher level apprenticeships you can now access funding to develop existing staff members

Value added training

An apprenticeship is all about personal development. With training targeting the specific skills you as an employer have identified as the most important to you, every apprenticeship will add real value to your business

The following criteria must be met for an apprentice to be eligible for funding:

Be in a relevant job role and able to complete the apprenticeship within the time they have available

An apprentice must spend at least 50% of working hours in England over the duration of the apprenticeship

20% OFF-THE-JOB TRAINING

This sounds daunting and has been a source of worry for employers but it is important to understand the variety of activities that do contribute to this requirement and how to maximise the benefits of things you are already doing
