What are the benefits to your business?
Apprentices and trainees can set your business up for success, with valuable new skills and knowledge, plus increased productivity and competitiveness. Here’s how:
Bring in new skills and learnings
Training in-house is a great way to safeguard against future skills shortages. Apprentices and trainees also gain fresh skills and learnings that can be a useful resource for other employees, keeping your business current with new approaches and industry best practice.
Special pay rates and incentives make taking on an apprentice or trainee a cost-effective way of recruiting new talent. They acknowledge the training status of your apprentice or trainee, while also including provisions for that training. Over time, apprentices and trainees become more productive, and you’ll also benefit from their growing set of up-to-the-minute skills and industry insights.
Train existing staff to meet business needs
Apprentices and trainees needn’t be newcomers to your business. You can use apprenticeship or traineeship programs to upskill existing workers, ensuring your staff is qualified and productive – as well as challenged and enriched.
Give opportunities to learn and earn
Offering an apprenticeship or traineeship is also a meaningful way of assisting someone who’s looking to start or re-start their career in your industry. They can train, study and earn an income, all while contributing to your annual turnover.
