To mark National Apprenticeship Week, Direct Skills Group reveals why businesses should consider investing in apprentices to help boost their workforce…
Apprenticeships provide hands-on training in a real-world setting, allowing students to develop practical skills that are directly applicable to your industry and specific business needs. Apprentices training through Direct Skills Group gain regular on-the-job experience with their employer to help them hone their chosen craft, alongside weekly lessons in a classroom environment.
As an employer, you have the opportunity to adapt an apprentice’s training to suit your specific business needs, ensuring that those who are working for you gain the skills and knowledge necessary to excel within your company – and help you reach new heights and grow a highly-skilled workforce in the process.
Apprenticeships have the power to boost productivity by providing you with skilled and ambitious workers, who are eager to learn and contribute to your business and the teams within it.
Future talent pipeline
Hiring apprentices allows businesses to build a pipeline of skilled workers who are familiar with the company’s operations, culture and processes. Not only does this help ensure continued stability, performance and results, it also helps you to retain valuable team members.
Demonstrating a commitment to investing in employee development through apprenticeship programs can enhance your reputation as an employer of choice. This can attract top talent, improve employee morale and foster positive relationships with customers, suppliers and your wider community.
