Benefits of apprenticeships for employers

It is important for communities to work together to ensure economic strength and growth for the future. Yorkshire Coast College aims to develop partnerships with businesses through Apprenticeships, helping the local economy thrive.

Benefits include:

  • Improve your bottom lines

    Apprenticeships deliver real returns, helping you to improve productivity and be more competitive.

  • Keep your workforce motivated

    Apprentices tend to be eager, motivated, flexible and loyal to the company that invested in them.

  • Fill your skills gaps

    Apprenticeships deliver skills designed around your business needs, providing the skilled workers of the future.

Workplace Learning

Workplace learning offers you the chance to work towards an NVQ qualification within your work environment.

This is an ideal way to prove your competence within your chosen career and gain the qualification to help with future career development.

Funding for workplace learning is assessed on an individual basis as we require details about your employer and past qualifications achieved.

The launch of the Apprenticeship Levy is scheduled for 6 April 2017 and has been designed to encourage employers to use apprenticeship programmes, either for new staff or to upskill an existing workforce, and help reduce the skills gap within the UK’s workforce. The Apprenticeship Levy will be applied to all industries in the UK.
