Apprenticeships help businesses grow their own talent.
Nearly every employer that takes on an apprentice (96%) reports benefits to their business.
72% of businesses report improved productivity as a result of employing an apprentice.
Other benefits reported by apprentice-employers include improved product or service, the introduction of new ideas to the organisation, improved staff morale and better staff retention, each mentioned by around two-thirds of employers.
Apprenticeships develop a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce.
Businesses that offer Apprenticeships view them as beneficial to their long-term development. According to the British Chambers of Commerce, most employ an apprentice to improve the skills base within their business.
Apprentices are supported by quality training from local training organisations.
