Benefits of apprenticeships for employers

Grow your own talent

By tailoring the training to your business needs, you can grow your own talent and fill a skills gap efficiently.

New energy

An apprentice is motivated and eager to learn and can bring a new energy to your business, which will have a positive effect on existing staff.

Make a real difference

An apprentice is making a contribution to your workplace while they are learning and gaining skills on-the-job. They can add value to your business as soon as they start.

Discover new talent

If you’re looking for a school leaver with real potential, you can choose the right apprentice for your business from a pool of un-tapped talent.

Motivated staff

Apprenticeships are a great way to motivate your existing staff by investing in their development and supporting them in gaining industry specific skills and national recognised qualifications.

Develop a workforce for the future

Training apprentices can provide you with a skilled workforce for the future and can be much more cost-effective than hiring experienced staff.

Minimal disruption

Learning and assessment can often take place in the workplace, which means there is minimal disruption to your business.

Fresh ideas

Apprentices can bring fresh new ideas to your business and keep your business up-to-date with the latest techniques and technology – increasing your competitiveness, innovation and productivity.

A real asset

Employing an apprentice can be a real asset to your existing workforce and can support them with their day-to-day workload.

Hiring made easy

A high quality training provider such as Sunderland College can support you throughout the whole process – from recruitment to tailoring training to your business needs and helping you make the most of funding.
