HEAR from the employer...

Our primary objective in our apprenticeship programme is to build skills and keep staff. A skills gap is currently affecting many organisations and companies, meaning it is hard to fill vacancies.
By recruiting apprentices, we can train people to have the exact skills needed for our business, so investing in the future of the company.

In addition to building the skills base, the provision of quality training to apprentices is likely to bring benefits in terms of staff retention. A major reason for this is that staff typically feel loyal to employers who have invested in their training, and are therefore more engaged and motivated to stay long-term.
