Hiring an apprentice is a productive and effective way for any business to grow talent and develop a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce. 

Apprenticeships can help you to recruit new employees who are highly committed and their training can be adapted according to the needs of your organisation. Apprenticeships can also develop the skills of your current workforce to help improve retention and fill skill gaps in your organisation. Anyone over the age of 16 is eligible for an apprenticeship.

Eastleigh College offers apprenticeships at Level 2 through to Level 5, with development currently underway to offer degree apprenticeships:

  • Level 2 Apprenticeships - equivalent to five good GCSE passes
  • Level 3 Apprenticeships - equivalent to two A-level passes
  • Level 4 and 5 Apprenticeships - equivalent to the first stages of higher education, such as a foundation degree

Employing an apprentice is easier than you think and there’s financial support and help available from the government including the Apprenticeship Levy and financial incentives.
