Businesses are becoming increasingly aware of the benefits of apprenticeships and traineeships.

Apprenticeships develop a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce. Businesses that offer apprenticeships view them as beneficial to their long-term development.

According to the British Chambers of Commerce, most businesses employ an apprentice to improve the skills base within their business.
