Apprenticeships for SMEs - The Basics - BANES

Apprenticeships for SMEs
According to our 2017 Business Skills and Training Survey, 64.9% of businesses have never used an apprentice and over 50% claim they have no knowledge of the apprenticeship levy.
Businesses are just not aware of the benefits that hiring an apprentice can bring, how developing existing valued staff through apprenticeships improves retention, skills and morale and how they can be effective for SMEs as well as larger employers.
Many feel apprenticeships aren’t relevant for their businesses and are unaware of the funding opportunities available, as well as not knowing how to utilise this government funded education and training system to develop their workforce.
Have you used apprenticeships in your business?
Join us at this 2 hour workshop to:
Find out the benefits of hiring an apprentice
