How apprenticeships can benefit a business
What are apprenticeships?
Apprenticeships are an exciting option for both apprentice and employer. You can employ apprentices at different levels, from school leavers and university graduates, to people who want to further their careers or change career direction completely.
Hiring an apprentice is a productive and effective way to grow talent and develop a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce. Other benefits of working with apprentices include: adapting training to the needs of the business, motivating them to develop new skills, and developing and expanding your workforce.
The power of apprentices
As your business grows, staff often find their time is taken up by smaller tasks when they should be concentrating on their key areas of work. Delegating these basic jobs to an apprentice allows them to learn and take responsibility, while freeing up the time of your more experienced staff. Better allocation of work should make your business more productive. Additionally, once trained, apprentices are freely able to decide how they plant their roots in the business after they have dedicated themselves to developing skills in a section of your business’s services.
Your more experienced staff know your business well and have developed a conformity to your business, this leads to efficient workers, however a new look onto how jobs are completed can sometimes revolutionise your business. (in extreme cases)
Finally, traineeships give learners aged 16-23, who are unemployed, the numeracy and literacy skills, alongside work preparation and on-the-job training, to progress either to an Apprenticeship or into employment. Designed to last no longer than 6 months, Traineeships offer young learners the opportunity to gain basic employability skills and knowledge whilst deciding which progression route they are most suited to. Apprenticeships contrast this in the way that learners are searching for a job specific role and require a minimum of 30 hours
