Why you should recruit an Apprentice

Apprenticeships can help businesses across all sectors as they offer a route to harness fresh new talent. UK businesses consider skills shortages and recruitment difficulties a bigger threat to performance than soaring oil prices and declining consumer spending, and more than a quarter of these rate this form of vocational training higher than any other qualification.
If you have a role to fill an Apprentice could provide the effective solution. The combination of training and hands-on experience that comes with an Apprenticeship is an ideal way of ensuring you get someone who will learn the necessary skills to do the job.

The carefully balanced training we provide gives learners not only a qualification in their career choice with you, but also covers key basic skills such as teamwork, communication and problem solving, together with maths and English (where required) that are so valued by employers.
