Growing your business with apprenticeships (webinar)

Thursday 19 July 2018, 14:00 BST

Hiring an apprentice is a productive and efficient way for any business to cost-effectively recruit and upskill their workforce, ensuring they can grow their own talent and develop a motivated and qualified team.

This Personnel Today webinar, in association with the National Apprenticeships Service, will look at how apprenticeships can help grow your business.

Thousands of SMEs benefit from apprenticeships and employers that have an established apprenticeship programme report a wide range of benefits as a result of training apprentices, with 78% stating that productivity has improved and 86% of employers saying that apprenticeships developed skills relevant to their organisation.

Other benefits that apprenticeships contribute towards include:

  • increasing employee satisfaction
  • reducing staff turnover
  • saving on recruitment costs.

Employers can access significant funding: if you have a pay bill of less than £3 million a year then you could get 90% of your apprenticeship costs paid and if you have fewer than 50 staff, you could get 100% of your apprenticeship costs covered.

Register now to find out how an apprenticeship can help grow your business.

In this 60-minute webinar, Personnel Today’s editor Rob Moss is joined by Clare Bonson, head of intermediary engagement at the National Apprenticeships Service, and Claire Bennison, head of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) in the UK.

This free webinar includes a live Q&A session where our speakers will answer any questions about funding, recruitment, ROI and support.
