How can employers benefit from apprenticeship-style programs?

Apprenticeship is an employer-driven model. Employers play a critical role in driving apprenticeship design; hiring, training and mentoring apprentices
through on the job learning; and supporting structured technical instruction. Apprenticeship-style programs allow employers to :

  • Save on cost of recruitment
    Upskilling staff is a great way to ensure that your organization is staffed by personnel that have the skillsets you need without absorbing the costs
    associated with competing for new talent.

  • Take a systematic approach to training
    Ensures that employees are trained and certified to produce the highest skill levels required for the occupation.

  • Diversify your workforce
    Tap into pipelines that provide you with skilled employees from groups that are underrepresented in the industry.

  • Enhance employee retention
    92% of apprentices retain employment after program completion

  • Motivate your employees
    Keep employees motivated and committed for the long-term by helping them develop their skills and providing an avenue for upward mobility
    within the organization.

  • Create a safer work environment
    May reduce Workers Compensation costs due to the emphasis on safety.
