Can apprenticeships be used for existing staff?
Yes. You can use an apprenticeship as another way to upskill or retrain your existing employees, as long as the apprenticeship is helping them to build new skills and qualifications.
How flexible are apprenticeships?
Our training can be offered to suit you and your business needs. That could mean that your apprentices spend one day a week in college or be assessed on site. The style and timing of the learning is varied – it could be a block of time in a residential setting or online learning to fit in with shifts.
Is there a time limit on how long I can offer work experience for?
No, its completely up to you how you offer work placement. You could invite students in to your business for 1 day or offer weekly/monthly sessions. You can choose the number of students you deliver to, whether you prefer to offer on individual placement, or would prefer to give a life brief to an entire class.
How much does the recruitment service cost?
Our recruitment service is completely free to employers. Our team will organise a time that is best for you to discuss your business needs and help you find a solution that's right for your business.
