Focus On Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships are growing in popularity as an increasing number of employers realise the value of taking on a new member of staff in a way that is both cost-effective and beneficial to the growth and development of that individual and of the company as a whole. Business Times’ Focus on Apprenticeship feature looks at the benefits of taking on an apprentice and features those who provide the help and advice to make the process run smoothly.
