Apprenticeships are for all

Posted on Apr 01, 2020

Long gone are the days where Apprenticeships were the only training option for young people to land their first job within the trades industries. Accessible by almost anybody, apprenticeships continue to provide young people with opportunities to get their foot on the ladder but, much more than that, they allow individuals to enhance or even change careers, regardless of age or circumstance. They allow businesses to effectively workforce plan and invest in their workforce through training which can only have positive impacts on workforce engagement.

For individuals, apprenticeships can present a range of opportunities in a multitude of sectors and are a brilliant way to embark upon lifelong learning. And, there is no age limit; if you’ve been out of work for a while and are thinking about how you can get back into employment, are looking to progress in your current career or move into a new one then an apprenticeship could be for you.

For businesses, apprenticeships are a brilliant way to plan your workforce. From new entrants to future leaders, businesses can develop the talent that their current workforce is home to, and can address their current skills gaps at the same time.

Here’s a run down of the benefits for businesses:

  • New ideas - they can inject some fresh ideas which can spark a boost in the overall business productivity. Many businesses who have employed an apprentice found their productivity had increased
  • No added cost to you - apprenticeships are no added costs to your business, grants are available to businesses in recruiting apprentices
  • No down-time - most training providers now visit learners onsite and they are now geared up in a way to minimise disruption, which maximises business impact
  • Fill the skills gap - apprentices can help businesses by growing to their overall needs
  • Future proofing - they can provide you with skilled workers for your future business and the skills are developed to your business needs
