Apprenticeships have received increased attention in recent times for their value in offering young people a direct and affordable route into skilled jobs and careers, as an alternative to a university education. They are also an effective way for employers to develop their own talent, with the current and future skills needs of their organisation in mind.
The CIPD has produced this guide as a one-stop-shop for employers looking to offer apprenticeships, whether for the first time or with a view to improving their existing offering. It aims to offer objective support to employers within different organisational sectors and sizes, across the UK, addressing some of the issues and questions involved and ensuring they have the support they need to take on an apprentice.
