With the search for young, talented and ambitious individuals willing to learn and be trained becoming more difficult, CPiO is supporting the Government’s Technical Apprenticeship schemes to train the youth of today into becoming the future’s talent.
Apprentices earn a wage and work alongside trained and experienced staff to gain the skills for the particular role that they are interested in. Apprenticeships are designed, with the help of employers, to offer a structured program that teaches the young apprentice the skills required to do a job well.
Apprenticeships are open to people of all age groups over 16 years old, who are living in England and are not in full-time education. They can take between one and four years to complete, with recognised qualifications and certificates being awarded once completed.
The main benefit for the apprentice is that they get to learn whilst they earn. This means that not only are they being trained, gaining recognised qualifications and learning skills specific for the job, but they are also experiencing working life and are being paid for it.
Employers provide support for young apprentices. Their job is to ensure that the training programme is tailored to the apprentices
