English Apprenticeships: Our 2020 Vision

Enabling Apprenticeships says a lot about your business:

Whether you are taking on new staff or upskilling existing members of your team, Apprenticeships are a clear signal that you are prepared to invest in the future; that you care about your staff and their level of qualification in your industry. This not only inspires loyalty, but speaks volumes as to your commitment to your brand and to continued delivery of high levels of service.

Apprenticeships are a great way to tailor an employee’s skills sets to carefully meet the demands of your business. They also go a long way to increase staff morale. They are a clear indicator to current employees that you care about training, development and career progression

70% of surveyed employers said Apprenticeships improved product quality and service. *

Employing Apprentices shows that you are established, that you are looking to the future and that you are so good at what you do, others are keen to learn from you. 

Business benefits of Apprenticeships include:

  • Tailored skill sets

  • Enhanced skills & knowledge

  • Greater staff job satisfaction

  • Lower recruitment costs

  • Improved staff retention

  • Investment in the future

Learning about illnesses such as dementia was challenging and how to help a resident with their illness was tricky but very worthwhile. Doing the job and learning the reasoning behind why procedures have to be done the right way was a definite benefit of the training.
