How can Apprentices benefit your business?

Apprenticeships offer businesses a cost-effective route to harness fresh new talent or upskill existing workforce. Apprentices can help your business to increase productivity, improve competitiveness and ensure you have a committed and competent workforce to meet future challenges.

  • Increase profit and productivity

    Investing in Apprenticeship training is the ideal way to train a loyal, motivated and enthusiastic workforce, ensuring that the right staff stay within your organisation. Research conducted by the National Apprenticeship Service found that 80% of employers saw an increase in productivity in the workplace.

  • Fill skills gaps and develop a more highly-skilled and specialised workforce

    Through Apprenticeships, you can train your staff to fill specialised roles that are difficult to recruit for. An Apprenticeship also allows you to train your staff to work the way that you want them to, which ensures that not only do they have the skills they need to be more effective but also that they are the best ‘fit’ for your organisation.

  • Motivate your workforce and reduce staff turnover

    Apprentices tend to be eager, motivated, flexible and loyal to the company that has invested in them. A motivated workforce results in higher employee satisfaction and a better quality of work. 92% of employers taking on Apprentices noticed a more motivated work force.

  • Reduce recruitment and training costs

    Because Apprentices are trained in the workplace, Apprenticeships are more cost effective than hiring skilled staff and can help reduce your overall training and recruitment costs. In addition, 16-18 year old Apprentices are fully Government funded and there is provisional funding for those aged 19 and over, giving you the benefit of a skilled workforce without significant outlay.

  • Flexible Delivery Models

    Loughborough College provides flexible delivery models to meet employer’s needs, including: on site work based training and assessment, college day release, block release, and distance learning, depending on the size and needs of your business.
