Why recruit a business apprentice?

Business Apprenticeships are a great way to upskill current staff members and train new recruits in a host of support areas.

Here, we list the three top reasons why Business Apprenticeships could be right for your organisation:

Ideal for all sectors

No matter what the sector, all organisations need effective business functions, from accounting, administration, IT, management, marketing and customer service.

Here at the College we offer Business Apprenticeships across all of these areas and more, meaning employers can choose a programme that matches their training needs.”

A cost effective training option

Apprenticeships are ideal for employers of all sizes who want to either upskill current staff members or recruit new employees into their organisation.

Funding is also available depending on the framework/standard and size of the organisation, with incentives for those employing Apprentices aged 16-18.

Our Business Engagement Team will work with you to conduct a training needs analysis. They will then discuss the funding available to you and develop a training programme that really fits your needs

A loyal workforce

A total of 92% of employers taking on Apprentices noticed a more motivated workforce (.gov.uk).
