5 ways your business can benefit from an apprentice or trainee

04-Mar-2014 Are you thinking about taking on an apprentice or trainee in 2014? There are a number of benefits for your business - the following are just five!

1) An apprentice or trainee can help increase productivity in your business, which will have a positive impact on your bottom line. Many businesses find that hosting an apprentice causes them to rethink how they operate - this often leads to cost-cutting and time-saving changes.

2) You can train an apprentice or trainee to meet the specific needs of your business. That means if you are in a position to hire them as an employee they will already be well experienced in the way your business operates.

3) In helping an apprentice to gain a qualification, you are adding to the pool of skilled workers in your industry. This is very important, given the major skills shortages that sectors across the country are expected to face as we head toward the end of the decade.

4) Many businesses experience a great deal of satisfaction in passing on their knowledge and expertise during the course of the apprenticeship or traineeship.

5) Apprenticeships and traineeships can be full-time, part-time or school-based, depending on what you decide works best for your business. And, if you're worried about not having enough work for them to complete, don't worry - a Group Training Organisation can make sure they get the training needed.

If you want to know more, get in contact with a Group Training Organisation in your state or territory. They can provide you with advice on apprenticeships, and also help your business find the perfect match.
