Apprenticeships are an opportunity for young people to develop their skills and gain more qualifications. They also offer a fantastic way to benefit your business.
At Lifeskills, we've worked with leading organisations in various sectors to develop courses that understand your needs. So you gain the competitive advantage of employees who are learning the skills that you know work best for your business.
Employees aged between 16 and 24 may be suitable for an apprenticeship, with many free places available (particularly for those aged 16-18). As well as achieving an NVQ Level 2 or Level 3, apprentices gain a Technical Certificate in their area of study and key skills in communication and application of number.
We also offer apprenticeships to unemployed 16-18 year olds. We provide essential training at our learning centre and arrange work placements so they have the opportunity to put these into practice.
Freeport Designer Village, OCS, Basildon Hospital and Cannon are just a few of the organisations who have gained from working with Lifeskills. However, we pride ourselves on our experience of delivering training to organisations of every size. In fact, 78% of our apprentices gained their qualifications in the last contract year - that's well above the national average.
Administering training is always dealt with by our managers - so we don't put extra pressure on yours. As well as overseeing every aspect of the project, we can work with you to identify training needs and the most cost-effective methods.
Our courses are fully dealt with on-site, so your employees do not have to be out of the workplace and training can be arranged at times to suit you.
Here's a quick summary of some of the ways Apprenticeships can help your business:
- Better productivity - from a skilled, well-trained workforce
- Motivated staff - who work harder for your business and are easier to retain and recruit
- Relevant training - courses are designed by those in your industry
- No skills shortages - you can train your staff in relevant skills, and retain them
