What are Apprenticeships?

Apprenticeships are work- based learning programmes designed to give the apprentice the skills required in their chosen industry, while working towards nationally recognised qualifications. Apprenticeships are designed by the sector skills council around the needs of employers, which means the skills and training provided are relevant to your business sector. Apprenticeships are available in a wide range of sectors and you can access funding for the programme to train both new and existing employees.

Over 80% of employers who employ apprentices agree they make the workplace more productive, with 92% of employers agreeing that apprenticeships lead to a more motivated and satisfied workforce. Many businesses are opting to hire apprentices to help them through the tough economic climate.
