In this great article from The Telegraph, the Head of Learning & Development at Centrica tries to dispel a few myths around apprenticeships and talks about the benefits they have brought to the business.
Who can join an apprenticeship?
Apprenticeships aren’t necessarily just for someone at the beginning of their working life, they can be a great route for someone looking for a career change.
They are not too difficult to set up, there is a lot of support out there from the Government and the National Apprenticeship Service.
In this article, Centrica report that they have seen a 7% increase in productivity and a 6% increase in staff loyalty by introducing the apprenticeship scheme. This is because their employees appreciate the investment they are making in them.
How can it work for me?
It’s an excellent opportunity to develop your employees, help reduce the number of people leaving your organisation and bring more skills and experience in to your business. What’s even better is that you can get government funding to cover some of the cost of training and assessing an apprentice!
