Why choose an apprenticeship?
Apprenticeships are designed with industry experts to ensure that the training meets your business needs. The benefits of apprenticeships for employers cannot be understated. They allow you to:
Make the most of funding
If you’re a levy-paying employer, you will already be investing in apprenticeships – so why not make the most of this investment by using the funds available and taking on an apprentice? If you’re a non-levy paying employer, you can share the cost of apprenticeships with the Government. Find out more about the funding available to you.
Boost morale and reduce recruitment costs
Recruiting new hires can be costly; upskilling existing staff with an apprenticeship is a great way to boost the morale of and retain capable team members, while ensuring they are trained in the skills your business needs.
Secure the best new talent
On the other hand, offering new hires an opportunity to ‘earn while they learn’ as part of an apprenticeship enables you to attract the brightest and most dedicated jobseekers to your organisation – and NCATI can help manage this with our free apprenticeship recruitment service.
Develop a skilled and productive workforce
Apprenticeship training develops the skills and knowledge that are directly relevant to a learner’s job role, meaning it all leads to stronger output and quality of service, as reported by over three-quarters of employers in a survey commissioned by the Government in 2021.
Provide a financial return on investment
Apprenticeships offer excellent value for money as they give your staff full, nationally recognised qualifications and quickly pay for themselves in returns for the business.
