What is an apprenticeship?

Your business is unique, so are apprenticeships.  Apprenticeships are a unique way to grow your workforce by combining working with practical training. This means that whilst your apprentice is learning new skills and gaining a qualification, you will benefit from them contributing to your productivity. Training 2000’s apprenticeships are flexible and can be moulded to suit your business needs for both now and the future. Apprenticeships are about long term workforce development, to ensure sector specific technical and practical skills remain in the UK.  Training 2000 works closely with employers and sector skills councils to develop apprenticeships that meet current and future needs of your industry.

Benefits of employing an apprentice:

  • Offering apprenticeships will provide you with a pipeline of fresh recruits, widening your appeal to prospective employees and becoming an employer of choice
  • Apprentices will have the right skills and knowledge for the job in your organisation making them an asset to your workforce
  • Apprentices are highly motivated, keen to learn and progress within your businesses
  • Apprenticeships enable you the employer to introduce new talent to the business; ensuring that skills and experience are passed on through your workforce
  • Firms that employ apprentices lower their recruitment costs because training staff is more cost-effective than hiring skilled staff
  • Training apprentices produces workers with skills that are not available on the external jobs market, allowing businesses to shape their workers into precisely the right people for the job
  • Apprenticeships will give you the edge over your competitors

NHS logo I can thoroughly recommend Training 2000. I have been at East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust for 4 years and in that time have taken 5 apprentices on via Training 2000, and we have two staff from prior to myself working at East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust.   We have kept all the staff and they are all of high calibre.   I would not hesitate in getting our next students via Training 2000.   Charlotte Henson, Chief Management Accountant, East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust
