The introduction of the apprenticeship levy and the move to employer-led standards have put businesses in the driving seat. More control of funding, the chance to collaborate on new standards as a Trailblazer, and the introduction of higher and degree
apprenticeships mean that there has never been a better or more exciting time to consider apprenticeships.
69% of employers say that employing apprentices improved staff retention.
For the apprentice, apprenticeships offer the chance to gain valuable skills, higher earning potential and improved life chances. Higher and degree apprenticeships allow apprentices to gain university-level qualifications while working. There is no limit
to how high and how far an apprentice can go.
