Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships take between one and four years to complete, cover a wide variety of job roles and are tailored specifically for individual organisations requirements. They are a great cost effective   way of giving your business the edge.

 

  1 Training apprentices can be more cost effective than hiring skilled staff, leading to lower overall training and recruitment costs.

2 Apprenticeships deliver skills designed around your business needs providing the skilled workers you need for the future.

3 They can help you develop the specialist skills you need to keep up to date with the latest technology and working practices in your sector.

4 Apprentices tend to be eager, motivated, flexible and loyal to the company that invested in them.
