Accelerate the growth of your business. Spot people with talent and potential in your organisation. Give them the opportunity to gain professionally accredited qualifications.
Apprenticeships have evolved; they are no longer just for school leavers. In 2017/18, 57% of all apprenticeship starts were Level 3 or Higher, which shows a 10% increase on the previous year. Higher level apprenticeships are becoming more and more popular, as they provide an affordable solution for employers to develop existing staff members with professionally accredited qualifications on the job.
There are many benefits to upskilling current employees, from improving staff retention, developing employees with the skills your business needs, boosting moral and engagement amongst your employees and increasing customer satisfaction. Therefore, appreciating the importance of employee training and professional development is imperative to enable growth in your business
