Rise in Apprenticeships in Professional Services

Rise in Apprenticeships

Rise in professional apprenticeships

Apprenticeships are traditionally associated with craft and trade skills such as construction or plumbing, but recently employers in professional services are noticing the benefits. This has caused a rise in new schemes from a wide range of employment sectors.

An example of this is e-skills, who are currently advertising for an IT apprenticeship framework manager. According to their website, over “500,000 new entrants will be needed for the IT sector over the next five years” due to a significant gap in computing knowledge. Taking on apprentices is highly cost effective and economical for potential employers. It is a great way of investing in your company’s future; teaching job specific skills to young and ambitious employees who will mould into valued members of the team.
