Benefits for employers
There are real business benefits to taking on apprentices. Apprenticeships can make your organisation more effective, productive and competitive by addressing your skill gaps directly, even in uncertain economic times.
In a recent survey, the majority of employers said that apprenticeships helped them to improve productivity and to be more competitive. They also said that training apprentices is more cost effective than hiring skilled staff, leading to lower overall training and recruitment costs.
