You’re missing out if you’ve yet to consider the benefits of an Apprenticeship.
With such a wide variety of Apprenticeships now available, together with government funding, it’s time to seize the opportunity and sharpen your professional edge. Higher level Apprenticeships are extremely valuable. Introducing these as part of your training offer can help you retain staff and increase productivity.
Level 4 and 5 Apprenticeships provide the opportunity to gain qualifications whilst continuing to work. By combining on-the-job training and off-the-job learning, higher level Apprenticeships are an alternative to a university degree. Apprentices learn practical skills alongside academic knowledge to develop the occupational competencies demanded by specific job roles, they often make highly productive employees.
If you are looking to focus on senior staff, training will equip your team with the knowledge to meet daily management challenges in a professional and proficient manner. Improving performance and effectiveness at managing people and projects will raise confidence, fill higher level skill gaps and can also attract higher calibre staff.
An Apprenticeship is also an opportunity for managers who want to sharpen their professional edge, enhance their effectiveness and increase productivity. There are additional benefits too; the Level 5 Departmental Manager Apprenticeship offers membership to the Chartered Management Institute. The ultimate management accolade can be achieved – Chartered Manager status. Being part of an extensive management community opens doors for opportunities and business growth.
If you’re a levy-paying employer, higher-level Apprenticeships are a great way to attract talent to your business, train your staff and get a real return on investment from your levy payments.
