The Benefits of Employing an Apprentice

Recruiting new talent or upskilling your employees with an apprenticeship is a great way to inject the digital and tech skills your company needs with precision, speed and cost efficiency.

  • An apprenticeship is a great way to recruit or retain talent your organisation needs.
  • Apprentices spend 80% of their time in the workplace putting their skills into practice; the rest of the time is spent earning an industry-recognised qualification.
  • Our programme pathways, from school-leaver to degree-level, allow learners to progress and grow within your company.
  • Apprentices are fully supported by our subject experts and digital learning consultants, providing feedback and guidance both digitally and face-to-face.
  • Each apprenticeship is at least 95% funded by the government apprenticeship levy.
