Would your organisation benefit from fresh talent?

By using Apprenticeships, you get the chance to train new and existing staff members. An apprentice costs less than you might think, and funding is available.

Apprenticeships are not just for those aged 16-18 and are not only found across industries such as construction and engineering. Apprentices can be any age and can be employed across all sectors, from customer service to the media and digital industries. Apprentices earn a wage whilst working alongside more experienced staff.

There is increasing interest in higher-level Apprenticeships. The Heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership’s skills agenda has highlighted a clear link between having higher levels of skills and higher levels of productivity. There has been a lot of work surrounding the development of degree and higher-level Apprenticeships; these again have been developed with a focus on providing the higher-level skills that address the needs of businesses in the region. 

By using Apprenticeships, you get a chance to train new and existing staff members. An apprentice costs less than you might think, and funding is available. Whether your sector is construction or catering, business services or hair and beauty, an Apprenticeship could help take your organisation to the next level. And we'll be here to support you every step of the way!
