Recruit an Apprentice

Recruit an Apprentice

The benefits of Apprenticeships are becoming increasingly obvious to more and more businesses.

Recent surveys show that apprenticeships develop a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce. Businesses that offer apprenticeships view their newly trained employees as beneficial to their long-term business strategy and often see apprentices develop and progress through the business.

According to the British Chambers of Commerce, most employers hire an apprentice to improve the skills base within their business.

An apprenticeship is a way for young people and adult learners to ‘earn while they learn’ in a real working environment, gaining a real qualification and a chance to start a rewarding career.

Apprenticeships are available to businesses of all sizes and sectors in England. We offer a variety of subject areas, most of our qualifications will last anything from 12 months to 4 years. At GB Training we ensure that every apprenticeship is relevant and appropriate both for the apprentice and the business.


Apprenticeships are for businesses large and small and are supported with bonuses for companies.

Firms will receive £2,000 for each apprentice they take on and £1,500 for those apprentices over 25 years old.

When employers take on a 16-18 year old on an apprenticeship, they will receive £1,000 to help meet the extra costs associated with this. This will be paid to employers in two equal instalments at 3 months and 12 months. These payments are made to employers via their training provider, who will pass the money on.
