77% of employers believe that apprenticeships make their business more competitive.

How is the apprenticeship structured? An apprenticeship includes the following components: a competence-based element, such as an NVQ, a knowledge-based element or technical certificate, transferable or functional skills (English, Maths) and a module on Employer Rights and Responsibilities.
How are people recruited? Apprentices are recruited for you by Access Apprenticeships working with the National Apprenticeships Service (NAS) and a network of employment services. This saves your business expensive recruitment costs.
