Why employ apprentices?
You may be wondering why employing an apprentice is a good idea in the first place…
Apprentices are great for business as they add energy, bring new ideas and are ready to adapt to changing environments. Whilst working they will also be working towards relevant industry qualifications which are recognised by employers across the country. The training providers we partner with have direct contracts with the National Apprenticeship Service and the Skills Funding Agency, which means that your apprentices will achieve nationally recognised qualifications whilst also gaining direct ‘on the job’ experience.
Legally, apprentices need to work at least an average of 30 hours per week and you would need to pay them at least £3.50 per hour*.
You may also be eligible for a grant for employing an apprentice, so now is an excellent time to consider apprenticeships.
Our specialist occupational areas are Digital Media, Software Developer and IT Professional. These are all advanced apprenticeships offering entry into growing sectors. In addition to these, we also recruit for roles in the following disciplines-
Property Services- for estate and letting agents
Business Administration & Customer Service
Children & Young Person’s Workforce
Health & Social Care
