Apprenticeships: Good for Business

Apprentices are employees who earn a wage and work alongside experienced staff in businesses to gain job-specific skills. In addition to development of their work place skills apprentices will attend off the job training, usually on a day-release basis to gain a relevant course of further education.


The benefits of employing an Apprentice are shown in the ‘Good for Business’ research carried out by the National Apprenticeship Service:

·        Apprentices bring new ideas into your company.

·        Apprentices inject new life blood into a company.

·        Apprenticeships demonstrate your company’s commitment to training.

·        Apprentices can be moulded into your ideal employee.
