Apprenticeships - your next step?
There are thousands of students starting university during these next few weeks, without knowing what job market struggles they may face when they complete their years of studying. In the past few years, the cost of tuition fees has gone through the roof and students are left wondering whether to commit themselves into the thousands of debt or find a better alternative.
Although university can be a fantastic way of furthering your education, this is not the case for everyone. Equally, there are many other routes out there that may suit someone better.
Apprenticeships can be a fantastic alternative, as many businesses ranging from Hair Salons to Construction are involved in the scheme and provide funded training. Employers these days are looking for a candidate that shows commitment, determination but also experience and therefore, fresh out of university, students may struggle.
Plus, of the hundreds of thousands of businesses that offer apprenticeship places, 92% of employers who hire apprentices believe that the scheme leads to a more motivated and satisfied workforce. Taking on an apprentice allows funded training to take part with little disruption to business operations but also keeps the student satisfied as they earn whilst they learn.
Luckily for you, Portland Training offers a number of Apprenticeships, with a direct focus on the learner getting the most out of the scheme. We have an extremely experienced team, who work with local businesses with the same goals. That way we can ensure your training is done correctly, but also in the most fulfilling way.
