The Myth's

1) Apprenticeships are for trades

  • Construction
  • Engineering
  • Bricklaying
  • Plumbing
  • Electricians

​Not true, Apprenticeships are available in all sectors, covering vast subjects. Some of the most popular are:

  • IT
  • Law
  • Business
  • Accounting

2) Apprenticeships are for non academics

No, modern Apprenticeships include degree level and beyond.

3) Apprenticeships are a way for employers to pay peanuts for workers

Most of the large companies that take on Apprentices pay good rates, it's not uncommon for Apprentices to be on £12k - £18k. A recent study concluded that an Apprentice, on average, earns £73,000 more over their career than a graduate. Apprentices learn much needed skills and qualify with NO debt.

4) Apprentices train with you and then leave

When programmes are run well, with a structured progression, Apprentices are amongst the most loyal employees.

5) Employing an Apprentice will take up too much of my time

Mentoring and training an Apprentice should be no different to mentoring and training your existing staff. There is so much help, guidance and assistance available too. 

Most, if not all, companies of the size who need to pay the levy (payroll of £3m pa or more) are putting in place Apprenticeship programmes.

They need to use the levy or lose it.

Smaller companies can take on Apprentices and apply for the funding to train them, the funds would come from the levy charged to the larger companies. So you pay the salary and the levy is used to pay for the training.
