Employers looking for apprentices

Essex employers invested in 11,710 apprentices last year. Isn’t it time you found out what an apprentice can do for you?

Apprenticeships are for ambitious people of all ages who want to earn while they learn, gaining real skills and knowledge. They offer employers the opportunity to strengthen and diversify their workforce providing a future talent pipeline tailored to business needs.

An apprenticeship is first and foremost a job and comes with substantial training and the development of transferable skills, which is beneficial to the employer and the employee. Most of the training is on-the-job working with a mentor, to learn job specific skills in the workplace. Off-the-job training will depend on the occupational area, the training organisation and the requirements and wishes of the employer.
