Hiring an Apprentice is a productive and effective way for any business to grow talent and develop a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce. Work-based learning provides a great opportunity for you to equip your workforce with nationally recognised, sector-specific qualifications, enabling your staff to develop their skills and grow your business.
As the economy recovers from the COVID-19 outbreak, Apprenticeships will be more important than ever in helping businesses to recruit the right people, and develop the skills they need to respond to conditions and grow – both now and in the long-term.
In recognition of the value Apprentices can bring to our economy, the government have announced that an incentive payment will be made to employers who hire an apprentice between 1st August 2020 and 31st January 2021.
