Employer Support


Apprenticeship support for businesses

Apprenticeships are so important to businesses and young people. We work in partnership with the Apprenticeship Ambassador Network, Doncaster Opportunity Area and Doncaster Council to increase the number of high quality apprenticeship opportunities in Doncaster and raise awareness of the fantastic opportunities available to the next generation.

What value do apprenticeships bring business?

Businesses who take on apprentices benefit from:

  • A boost in productivity and profitability
  • A ready, skilled and loyal workforce
  • A cost-effective hiring and training solution
  • A loyal future employee, eager to learn, grow and help your business
  • Receiving the most up-to-date training, both in classroom learning and practical, hands-on skills
  • A ‘blank slate’ to be specifically trained in your company’s culture, processes and technologies
  • New talent to secure the future of your skills base

Businesses across the borough have told us how apprenticeships contribute to their growth, with apprentices providing a fresh outlook, new skills and a dynamic approach.
