Which method is right for me?
We have found that both Levy and non-levy employers are increasingly choosing to invest in training for staff already in-place through an apprenticeship, but are reluctant to recruit apprentices from outside of the company. By upskilling staff members through an apprenticeship instead, organisations are providing a platform for them to develop and evolve within the organisational structure, aiding progression into senior roles.
Whilst apprenticeships are more commonly thought of as for young people, a recent Apprenticeship Statistics England Report published in January 2019 states that “People aged 25 and over accounted for 46% of apprenticeship starts in 2016/17”.
This emerging trend shift supports evidence that the perception of apprenticeships is changing. Established assumptions that apprentices can only be recent school leavers or labour-intensive workers on entry-level programmes are evolving.
Apprenticeships are an excellent way of increasing the skillset of your current workforce and providing on-the-job training for someone you already know has the potential and motivation to go further in your business.
These modules are delivered in the classroom on scheduled dates throughout the year.
