From education to employment

How to recruit your first apprentice – Amazing Apprenticeships unpick the process in brand new employer guide

The final resource in its National Apprenticeship Week collection, this time Amazing Apprenticeships is deciphering the steps employers need to follow to bring their apprenticeship recruitment into the 21st century!

Covering everything from initial considerations such as how to decide which apprenticeship to offer and how to source a training provider to recruitment ideas, the guide is a step-by-step manual to getting the process right, first-time. 

“How to get started is something we are asked time and again, not only by employers just starting on the apprenticeship journey but also by those who already recruit apprentices and want to rethink their practices to widen their offering to attract a more diverse talent pool,” said Founder and Director of Amazing Apprenticeships, Anna Morrison CBE. “This guide pools our knowledge and experience together into one place and gives the best possible starting point for businesses looking to recruit and the apprentices who ultimately join them.”

The guide joins the recently released Higher and Degree Listing, showcasing more than 300 vacancies from 70 employers including Balfour Beatty, Ofcom, Goldman Sachs, Government Economic Service (GES), MBDA, Ford Motor and Jaguar Land Rover.

“It’s always such as exciting time of year as we draw closer to National Apprenticeship Week,” continues Morrison,  “The opportunities included in this latest version of the Higher and Degree Listing are phenomenal and underline how some of the biggest and best companies in the country are looking to apprenticeships. This new guide will help even more organisations to start their own journey and create opportunities for young people.” Both the ‘Step by Step Guide on How to Recruit Your First Apprentice’ and the ‘Higher and Degree Listing’ are live on the Amazing Apprenticeships website now alongside the full NAW 2023 resource library.
