Learners...

The world is changing fast. With economic uncertainty and fierce competition for jobs, there’s never been a greater need to have marketable skills. But you don’t need to sit in a class all day to get them. With an Apprenticeship, you can earn while you’re learning and gain recognised qualifications as you work.

As employees, apprentices earn a wage and work alongside experienced staff to gain job-specific skills. Employers all over the country recognise and value Apprenticeships as they show that you’ve been trained in the skills they need.

Employers...

What do Jaguar Land Rover, Mulberry and Tesco have in common? The answer is that, along with many other companies, they are investing in Apprenticeships, even in these uncertain economic times.

Why? Because they understand that a skilled workforce can help them weather tough market conditions and emerge stronger. In fact, businesses that invest in training are far more likely to survive a downturn than those that don’t.

Apprenticeships deliver real returns to your bottom line. In a recent survey,* the majority of employers said that Apprenticeships helped them to improve productivity and to be more competitive.
