There are many great benefits to employers in taking on an Apprentice

Save on the costs of recruitment

Recruiting new staff is costly and can come with risks. Up-skilling existing staff is a great way to ensure your organisation has the capable personnel you need, without resorting unduly to new hires. 

Improve your service

In a survey commissioned by the government in 2017, 86% of employers reported benefiting from ‘the development of skills relevant to the organisation’ by hiring apprentices.

A further three-quarters highlighted ‘improved productivity, better quality of product or service, and higher staff morale.’

Support employees to develop skills and knowledge that are directly relevant to their jobs

The syllabi for all degree apprenticeships have been designed in partnership with industry in order to plug existing skills gaps, meaning your employee will be learning what they need for success in their chosen field.

The range of degree apprenticeship courses offered, both at UWL and nationwide, is set to continue expanding, so get in touch with us if you can’t see your preferred pathway on these pages.

Motivate your employees 

One of the most significant benefits of apprenticeships, for employers and staff alike, is that they help organisations keep their employees motivated and committed for the long-term, by helping them develop their skills over several years.

Your apprentice(s) will be working in the knowledge that at the end of this period they will have a qualification that is tremendously valuable, to them individually and to you as an employer.

Develop high calibre staff 

Well-trained, highly skilled staff add value to all organisations, both directly and through their ability to coach, mentor and train other team members.

Build the team you need to meet your business objectives.

Secure the best new talent

Offering a degree apprenticeship provides a fantastic incentive to potential job applicants, enabling you to choose from the brightest and most dedicated jobseekers.
