A breath of fresh air - Could you benefit from employing an apprentice?

More and more businesses are benefiting from employing apprentices. Large and small organisations are often choosing the apprenticeship route with recruitment nowadays. Many businesses are seeing the huge positive impact that apprenticeship programs are having on their company.

If you have been toying with the idea of taking on an apprentice, below we’ve explained just a few reasons why employing an apprentice is such a fantastic step to take in your business.

Growing your own talent

Having an apprentice is a cost-effective way to grow your own talent. With the new introduction of higher apprenticeships, employers can now train their staff in higher level skills that will help the business grow.

Specific Job Roles

Apprenticeship programs can be tailored to specific job roles, making them flexible for your business. Training a new apprentice to think and act in the interest of your business from day one means they won’t have picked up any bad practice from other companies.

Fresh Perspective

Apprentices bring creativity and fresh perspective to any organisation. Injecting some youthful talent can add a whole new dimension to your workplace. They come with energy and ideas, actively contributing to the business development.


During and after an apprentice has been trained in-house or been put through an apprenticeship program employees tend to be highly motivated and committed to the company.

An apprenticeship encourages employees to think of their job as a career and they are more than likely to stay on after the apprenticeship.


Apprenticeship programs help employers ensure that they get the exact skills and behaviours they need while growing a talented and engaged workforce. Employers running apprenticeship schemes value their apprentices because they help them fill the skills gap.

Students are choosing to go down the apprenticeship route for many reasons.

You should think about choosing to employ an apprentice in your business.
