Find out how Apprenticeships can help your business - free online event

30th July 2021 – Tags: Apprenticeships

Norfolk businesses are being offered the chance to find out how Apprenticeships can make a real difference to their organisation, as part of a free online event from City College Norwich.

Drawing on their extensive experience of working with businesses from all major sectors of the economy, members of the college’s Apprenticeship team will share their insights into the business benefits of hiring an apprentice.

Hiring an apprentice is a productive and effective way to grow talent and develop a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce. Businesses consistently cite developing skills relevant to their organisation, improved productivity, and improvements in the quality of their product or service, as key benefits of Apprenticeships.

As well as covering the key benefits of Apprenticeship training, the event will also tackle some common misconceptions.

Employing an apprentice is easier than many people think, and the recently revamped Apprenticeship Standards are more flexible than ever and can be highly tailored to businesses’ individual needs.

The range of Apprenticeships available extends far beyond the traditional ‘trades’ that many people still think of when Apprenticeships are mentioned. For example, City College Norwich offers Apprenticeships in areas such as Digital Marketing, IT, Customer Service, Business Administration, HR, Accountancy, and Management.

The event will also address some wider topics that are key to any business today - digital marketing tips, how to improve your social media, and the importance of leadership.
