Many businesses across the UK see apprenticeships as a cost effective way to recruit new staff and incorporate it into their business growth strategy. Apprenticeships not only increase productivity but also ensure your workforce is highly skilled and ahead of latest developments in the industry. Below are some of the key benefits of hiring an apprentice.

Future-proof your business

Employing an apprentice is a cost effective and sustainable way to help build and grow a strong workforce. Apprentices receive training and support to help develop the knowledge, skills and understanding they require to fit into key roles within your organisation.

Fill your skills gap

The Northern Skills Group Apprenticeship Programme is designed to recruit apprentices around your individual business needs. If you feel you need to develop a specific skill set within the business or keep up to date with the latest technology and practices within your sector, hiring an apprentice can aid that development.

Develop existing staff

Existing staff can also be trained through an apprenticeship. Training existing staff helps develop the specialist skills needed to keep up to date with the latest technology and helps create a loyal and happy workforce.
