How do apprenticeships benefit employers?

Cost-effective recruitment

The government have introduced several strategies to help businesses with the cost of training and assessment, including the Apprenticeship Levy which was introduced in 2017.

With a host of funding incentives available, an apprenticeship programme is a cost-effective way of injecting raw talent into your business. 

Tailored training 

Apprenticeship training is flexible and can be adapted to the needs of your business.

Using a framework of standards set with your training provider, you can train a new apprentice in your business practices, safe in the knowledge they are building the right skill set from day one. 

Give back to your local community

Setting up an apprenticeship programme is a productive way for your business to give back to the local community.

By setting up an apprenticeship programme, you are giving young people a fair chance to advance from education to employment, with training, qualifications, a fair wage - and none of the student debt!

Build longevity into your business

Up to 94%* of PETA apprentices stay in employment after completing their apprenticeship.

Introducing an apprenticeship programme into your business will build a pipeline of talent that can be trained up to management level. This will effectively increase staff retention by putting personal development at the forefront of your business model.
