Apprenticeships are vocational training programmes that help give you or your employees the sustainable skills and recognised qualifications in the Health & Social Care fields for a long and successful career.
Through funded, work-based learning, both new and existing employees can learn the skills and knowledge to work with greater effectiveness: more productivity, more motivation, more satisfaction and more loyalty. A third (32%) of all former apprentices had received a promotion within 12 months of finishing, and of those in work:
- Employers think that qualified apprentices are 15% more employable than those with other qualifications.
- 96% of employers that take on an apprentice report benefits to their business.
By working closely with you, Varsity Training can tailor apprentices’ learning to meet the flexible and changing needs of your caring environment in the short and long-term.
Many talented young people see Apprenticeships as a paid foot in the door of a career, and – as university tuition fees spiral upwards – more and more students are turning to Apprenticeships, meaning that employers now have access to an ever bigger and better talent pool.
The flexibility of Apprenticeships means that apprentices can quickly adapt to changing needs. Employers also agree that apprentices make a contribution to their business from day one, unlike graduates, who can require intensive training. As such, 90% of employers view vocationally trained staff as key to their success.
