Employers of all sizes from any sector can access apprenticeships and they are a proven way to train your workforce whilst making your organisation more productive and competitive. Reports show that 80% of apprentice employers agree that their apprentices make their workplace more productive and 88% believe Apprenticeships lead to a more motivated and satisfied workforce. (* Statistics from GOV.UK). Apprenticeship schemes can enable staff to develop a broad base of skills that will help set any organisation in good stead for years to come.
