Young apprentices can be some of the most dedicated workers, bringing fresh perspectives and new skill sets into the workforce. They provide opportunities for employers to ‘grow their own’ and develop a crucial talent pipeline for businesses.
In fact, 73% of employers say that staff morale is improved by having apprentices!
Many employers also use apprenticeships as a way of upskilling young people
to meet their current and future skills needs. This can be particularly helpful for employers with an ageing workforce and those who require bespoke or specialist skills which may not be covered by a standard college course.
