Think you know about apprenticeships? Think again.

 

For many businesses, standard methods of recruitment are no longer enough to bridge skills gaps and talent shortages.

Apprenticeships offer an effective solution to these challenges – giving you access to a wider talent pool.

Apprenticeships can also offer the opportunity to upskill existing employees and build your own in-house talent.

For more information about how apprenticeships can help to grow your business, get in touch with a member of our team today.

 

How we can help

Whether you are starting to explore apprenticeship options for your business, have specific questions around funding or practical issues, or are ready to recruit, we are on hand to work with you and guide you through the process.

Our team of Skills and Business Relationship Managers can offer:

  • Support with identifying apprenticeship opportunities
  • Understanding the standards and process 
  • Advice for advertising for an apprentice
  • Understanding the apprenticeship levy and accessing the levy pool
