What is an apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a government funded scheme designed to fill a vocational skills gap for people in the labour market.

  • Over 80% of employers who employ apprentices agree they make their workplace more productive
  • 81% of consumers favour using companies that take on apprentices

Apprentices are normal employees but the employer commits to provide on the job training and letting their apprentice attend educational workshops after an initial burst. Our workshops are half a day each month.

In return the employer is allowed to flex the apprentice’s pay structure and the government makes a contribution towards costs. More importantly the employer gains fresh thinking and great energy around the office, plus the satisfaction of knowing they are contributing to creating an up-skilled workforce.

An apprenticeship is a commitment for between one and a half and two years for both apprentice and employer, so we take great care to match the right apprentice with the right job. This in turn means employee retention and lower recruitment costs.
