The power of apprenticeships to transform your business

We know that the role of learning is to transform - whether it’s companies, cultures, or individuals. Apprenticeships are a productive and effective way to nurture talent, and develop a motivated and skilled workforce.

Develop a talent pipeline

Bringing new talent into your organisation and developing employees with an apprenticeship from day one will create a passion and willingness to integrate themselves in the workplace, making them a great addition to your team.

Bridge skills gaps

Your employee might also be further along in their career, and want to attain higher level knowledge, or change roles whilst staying in work. You may be able to fill a skills gap without having to take on more staff, giving your employees the opportunity to grow as your business grows.

Grow your organisation

An apprenticeship has to be relevant to an individual’s job role and they must dedicate time during work towards it. This means you benefit from your employees having dedicated time to focus on transformational projects and opportunities for your organisation, which can be put into practice.

Why apprenticeships?

Not all training is equal

Whilst it’s possible for people to do shorter, specialist skills training, the technical knowledge isn’t always easily transferred and applied back to the workplace to make a noticeable impact.

Apprenticeships deliver the best grounding

They provide 360 degree development for your people to apply their learning directly to real work based projects, to solve challenges for your organisation, for longer.

High demand and short supply

Apprenticeships are a great way to build your own talent, future proofing you, and making your organisation more attractive to future talent.

Refresh and grow your talent

Apprenticeships are a great way to retrain, upskill or encourage diversity in your organisation by recruiting fresh new talent from different backgrounds.

Funding an apprenticeship

Employers can get support from the government to fund apprenticeship training. The amount available can depend on whether you are a Levy payer or not, the size of your organisation and whether you are employing a young apprentice.
