Finding and training your future stars

Could your business benefit from an apprentice?

Apprenticeships are an excellent way to grow your business. Nobody knows this better than an apprenticeship company that has helped young people start off their own careers for the past 25 years – many of whom are now managers or run their own businesses.

With the government providing funding for businesses that take on an apprentice, it’s easy to see why more companies are reaching out to Starting Off to help them find and recruit fresh new talent. An apprenticeship is a great way to help your business by training and developing a young person who will stay in your business for years to come or grow with your business.

Apprenticeships in Northamptonshire are a highly important avenue of learning that many students are taking advantage of; with more than 7,280 apprentices starting apprenticeships last year, 1,140 more than the year before, it shows an increasing popularity that businesses in Northampton could get huge rewards from.

Why are apprenticeships becoming more popular?
