Apprenticeships have become the training programme of choice for many employers across a wide range of different industries.
If you are an employer…
TVS Education offer a variety of apprenticeship standards, from sport and physical activity, through to leadership and management. The variety of apprenticeships that are now available enable employers to train staff from across all departments, from an intermediate level through to university-level qualifications.
An apprentice will learn while they work. This could take the form of a day release to a centre of learning, or they could be based on your premises for five days a week, completing their studies at work. How the apprenticeship is designed is based on the needs of you and your apprentice.
You don’t need to employ a new member staff in order to benefit from apprenticeships. Most employers choose to recruit new people as apprentices, but you can place an existing member of staff on an apprenticeship if they have taken on additional responsibilities or moved to a new role in the last three years. This can be an effective way of training members of staff who have been identified as having great potential.
Employers tell us that integrating apprenticeships into their organisation brings a range of additional benefits to the business, notably:
- A loyal workforce that appreciates the investment in their development
- Reduced training costs
- Skills gaps addressed
- Improved productivity
- Reduced recruitment costs
- A significant return on investment
TVS Education can advise on the funding currently available to employers looking to take on apprentices. Our team have experience and expertise in ensuring that your investment in the apprenticeship programme is as cost effective as it can possibly be. We can also advise on the latest apprenticeship reforms that will affect funding over the next few years.
Apprentices complete standards relevant to their role and the industry, and receive regular visits from the TVS team to make sure that they are developing at the right pace and performing at a level that is meeting your expectations.
If you are a learner…
If you’re thinking about taking on the challenge of an apprenticeship, it could become one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make.
If you choose to become an apprentice, it will only be the start of your career journey. How far and where it will take you is up to you! But whether you ultimately decide to start your own business, aim for promotion or managerial positions, or choose to go on to university, an apprenticeship will provide you with the best of both worlds by preparing you for the rigours of working life and higher level study.
You’ll experience what it is like to work in industry and not have any debt to worry about once you have completed your studies. You will also have a recognised and respected qualification and real experience that modern employers are demanding.
With TVS Education, you will be supported throughout your apprenticeship by our experienced team who will ensure that you are employed by a reputable and vetted business, and developing the right skills at the right pace in your work setting.
