Why Hire an Apprentice?

What are the Benefits of Hiring an Apprentice?

An apprenticeship helps you to build a better business by equipping your workforce with improved skills and qualifications. The government wants to have 3 million apprenticeships by 2020. With the new government levy and apprenticeship training funding incentives, now is the best time for you to hire an apprentice.

Business leaders that recognise the benefits of hiring an apprentice know the rewards it can offer – from enhancing workplace culture to increasing efficiency and productivity. As the capital’s premier training provider, a CCCT apprenticeship will help you transform your business.
