FE Week Report – What Employers Need to Help Improve Apprenticeship Completions

by | 0 comments

FE Week recently published a new report, Enabling Better Outcomes: A wider view of apprenticeship success, which has revealed that while employers see the value in hiring apprentices, there are many barriers to supporting apprentices to complete their apprenticeship programmes. They found that financial barriers hinder the progress of apprentices, as businesses do not have the necessary funds to offer competitive pay, or time off, for apprentices to complete other elements of their apprenticeship. Importantly, they also found that employers who place more value on completion believe apprentices gain better soft skills, industry knowledge and experience, and become more productive employees. Click here for more from FE Week.
