why your business needs an apprentice

Apprenticeships are a great way to boost your business – whether it be filling a skills gap, testing new ideas or planning for the future.

Apprenticeships typically take between one and four years to complete. And when they finish, 90% of apprentices stay in employment – with 71% staying with the same employer.

Businesses that hire apprentices report an average increase in productivity by £214 a week – with almost 90% seeing a benefit to their business.

North Wales has plenty of potential to provide more apprenticeships thanks to the fantastic businesses and training providers across the region.

And a new project called Apprenticeships North Wales is providing a further boost.

The project brings together three local training providers – Grwp Llandrillo Menai, Arfon Dwyfor Training and North Wales Training – and aims to support businesses, employees and the unemployed.

The goal?

To create 100 new apprenticeships across North Wales.

But to do this, Apprenticeships North Wales needs the support of business owners – like you, maybe?

Pledging to provide just one apprenticeship can help kick-start that person’s career. Not to mention help your business now, and in the future.

“But what are the benefits to my business?” you ask.

Well, there’s 100% funding available for training apprentices…

…which can help tackle skill-shortages at no cost to your firm.

You’ll get an extra pair of hands…

…and maybe a whole load of fresh, new ideas.

It’s a tried and tested way to recruit new staff…

…but also ideal for re-training or up-skilling existing employees.

You can adapt training to meet the needs of your business…

…providing maximum impact with minimal disruption, helping you create a skilled workforce for the future.
