Why apprenticeships?

Poor people management is hitting the efficiency of UK businesses by an average of 8%, costing UK PLC £84bn a year. That's a huge loss to the UK economy and one that can be addressed by developing better leadership skills at all levels of the organisation.

Apprenticeships are a big opportunity for business. A report from the Centre for Economics Business Research (CEBR) in 2015 said that both businesses and consumers would prefer to do business with employers involved in apprenticeships.

The relaxation of the rules around apprenticeships means that more people than ever are eligible for them. However, many employers aren’t aware of the change in the rules. The City & Guilds Skills Shortage Nation report revealed that just a fifth (19%) of employers are aware that managers, directors and senior official job roles could be occupied by apprentices. More than half (59%) of the UK's HR professionals are not aware of new standards that enable apprenticeships to be used as a means to address the critical needs of their business.
