Since May of this year, the government’s ‘Get In Go Far’ advertising campaign has sought to encourage more young people to consider an apprenticeship. The four year campaign is in line with the government’s commitment to create 3 million apprenticeships by 2020.
The aim is to inform and inspire young people to consider apprenticeship as a credible route to a rewarding career, while at the same time encouraging employers to run apprenticeship programs.
Can your business benefit?
Hiring an apprentice could provide many benefits to an organisation, offering employers the opportunity to diversify their workforce and provide a pipeline for future talent aimed at their business needs. Apprenticeships are for ambitious people of all ages, who can learn while gaining real skills on the job.
