Why do businesses hire apprentices? 

More and more businesses are recognising the value of hiring apprentices in order to invest in the future and secure talent that is precisely aligned with their needs.  

The process is more accessible than you may realise. For smaller employers, government funding is available, covering between 95% to 100% of costs. Larger employers can use their levy for apprenticeship training.  

Apprenticeships are versatile, suitable for individuals at any age and career level, and offer a flexible solution to either bring in new talent or enhance the skills of current employees.  

Apprenticeships offer employers the opportunity to: 

  • Nurture a motivated, skilled, and qualified workforce.  
  • Provide on-the-job training within a safe working environment 
  • Foster a learning and development culture 
  • Achieve higher staff retention and morale 
  • Promote diversity and inclusion in the workplace 

Apprenticeship programmes are tailored to meet the specific needs of your business, making them a strategic investment in your organisation’s future.
