We hear about apprenticeships almost every day, from being advertised on the radio on your daily commute to work or on banner hanging outside large organisations saying they’re hiring. Truth is, not many of us give it a second thought.
As the world is getting smaller and more advanced, companies leading in their field must keep ahead of the competition in order to survive. This is where the key word comes in, innovation. Innovation is the only way for businesses to stay one step ahead and guess where the majority of companies’ innovative ideas come from? Apprentices. That's right, apprentices.
Think about when Nokia was once the pioneer of mobile phones, creating a phone that was basically indestructible and was home to probably the most addictive snake game the world has ever seen. But that all changed remarkably fast. Apple swooped in, the underdog in mobile phone technology; creating and bringing us the first touch screen mobile phone. Nokia was gone, almost overnight. Why? Because they failed to innovate.
This example can be translated into any business, yes yours. Are you falling behind whilst your competition gathers more and more market share? Don't get left behind, its time to hire an apprentice. They might not create the next flying car or solve the answer to 100% renewable energy, or maybe they will. There’s more to apprentices than you might think, how about the fact that they improve productivity by £214 a week, bring fresh ideas, reduce staff turnover or that they can be tailored to fit specific roles in your business? The list goes on.
