One of the most crucial areas for any business is recruitment. But, as anyone who has ever gone through that process, either as a potential applicant or as a would be employer, it can be a very time consuming, and resource consuming, endeavour. What happens if the job is not for you? Or what happens if you new employee is way out of their depth in a real world situation? Fortunately governments around the world have been looking at ways to help both parties ease through this transitional period.
One of the most popular ways that this training is given is through apprenticeship programmes. It allows people who are looking for a job to demonstrate to employers that they have the proper skillset to succeed in the role, while also giving them invaluable real world work experience. For the employer, though, they have an opportunity to test would be recruits in proper tests, see if they succeed and, if they fancy it, take some of the apprentices on full time.
