What is the real long-term value of Apprenticeships?

In the final instalment of my series of blogs, it was important to look at the fact that Apprenticeship programmes help achieve far reaching business benefits. Just look at the statistics below:

  • An average person completing an Apprenticeship increases productivity by £214 a week
  • 83% of employers who employ Apprentices rely on their Apprenticeship programme to provide the skilled workers that they need for the future
  • 77% of employers believe Apprenticeships make them more competitive
  • 57% report a high proportion of their Apprentices going on to attain management positions within the company.

All statistics are sourced from the National Apprenticeship Service.
