What can Apprenticeships do for your business?

Looking to grow your organisation? We can help you source, train and get the best out of your staff.

Recruitment

Taking on an Apprentice is a smart, cost-effective way to grow your business.

You will be surprised at the range and variety of Apprenticeships now available – for nearly every sector, covering all kinds of jobs, including professional occupations and higher skill levels.

Plus there are financial rewards. For instance, if you have less than 50 staff and take on an Apprentice under the age of 19, you will be eligible for £1,000 financial reward to help with the cost of wages.

Here are just some of the top benefits of taking on an Apprentice:

  • A cost-effective way to grow your business and improve productivity
  • Fresh, young talent in your business with enthusiasm and ideas
  • Opportunity to mould someone to your way of working
  • A chance for your staff to develop as they coach and mentor a new trainee
  • Support from us to help you with recruitment, funding, training and mentoring

 

As one of the largest providers of Apprenticeships in Sheffield City Region, we are experts so we can help you choose the right Apprenticeships for your organisation – whether you are operating locally, regionally or nationally. We then support you all the way through the process – from recruitment, to handling the paperwork, advising on funding, and providing management, training and mentoring support through to successful completion.

There are a variety of options to suit your needs:

  • Putting an existing member of your team onto an Apprenticeship – a great way of helping them take on fresh responsibilities and benefit from structured training
  • Supporting your staff to take industry-recognised qualifications, which can bring new expertise into the business
  • Sending staff on short courses for mandatory areas like Health & Safety
  • Bespoke training developed for your organisation

 

We also have a full range of solutions to support your administration, management, finance and IT departments.

Plus we can advise on any loans or funding support available to offset your costs.
