There are huge benefits to employing an apprentice and Yorkshire Apprentice is committed to helping businesses grow through employing new talent.
Employing an apprentice ensures that your business has the new skills and talent to grow and success. An apprentice does not need to attend college. They learn on the job, access eLearning and work closely with their assessor / mentor to develop the knowledge needed to do a first class job for you. Who better to pass on the skills they need than you, the business.
The Government is keen to support the growth of apprentices and it is easy to see why. Apprentices can help improve your bottom line. Training an apprentice can be more cost effective than the slow and sometimes risky process of hiring skilled staff. This leads to lower recruitment and training costs.
One of the worries of many businesses is that they have an ageing workforce. By employing apprentices you can develop the skills and knowledge needed for the future of your business. They are technology savvy and can bring fresh ideas to your business.
Apprentice are keen and eager to learn. They are also more loyal. If you have invested the time, effort and training in them why would they want to leave?
