Employ an Apprentice
There’s never been a better time to think Apprenticeships
Depending on the size of your business there are various ways to employ and apprentice and various options when it comes to funding. Some Apprenticeships are fully funded, meaning your business wouldn’t pay anything.
Every employer, no matter what size, can also put an existing employee onto an Apprenticeship. This is a great way to train and retain existing staff and show an investment in staff development.
But why employee an Apprentice?

Other great reasons to Think Apprenticeships
Cost-effective recruitment and training
There is funding available for all ages of apprentice. Young workers, aged 16-18, would receive full funding, and you only pay 5% of the course price for apprentices aged 19+ – which is as little as £150 per apprenticeship programme!

There are programmes in a variety of disciplines – from white collar to blue collar workers. Qualifications range from level 2 (GCSE Standard) up to undergraduate and postgraduate degree level.
