#GetInGoFar - Can an Apprenticeship help your business?

The summer exam results season is here and young people will soon find out if they have passed their GCSE or A Level exams and will begin looking to their future careers. A Level results will be known on 18 August, and GCSE results the following week, on 25 August.

We want it to become the norm for young people to consider an apprenticeship as a valid and respected route to a rewarding, well paid career.

Apprentices bring enthusiasm and a fresh perspective, so it’s no surprise that 89% of employers say they make their business more productive. With the expansion of higher and degree apprenticeships businesses can now access the higher-level technical skills vital to business performance and growth.

So what can you do as an employer?

A new campaign – Get In Go Far – has been designed to encourage more young people and their parents to recognise apprenticeships as a valid and credible route to a rewarding career.
