Since 2013, the average amount of apprentices who successfully complete their qualification through Quest training is 80%.
Year after year we are proud to be delivering success rates over 13% of the national average.
Why hire an apprentice?
Apprenticeships are a great way to grow your business from the inside out. They allow you to directly influence the skillset of your staff, which means you are able to develop a workforce that strengthens and compliments the values of the company.
And it's not just for new staff. Apprenticeships are also a great opportunity to tackle skills shortages within your business and boost the confidence and morale of your employees.
As part of National Apprenticeship Week 2017, the Skills Funding Agency released the following statistics:
“Almost 9 out of every 10 apprenticeship employers hoping to achieve business benefits report that apprenticeships deliver.”
We at Quest Training pride ourselves on consistently delivering apprenticeships with success rates well over the national average. When you work with us, you can be certain that your apprentices will gain key skills that will move your business forward.
“75% of employers report that apprenticeships directly improved the quality of their product or service.”
Apprentices constantly prove themselves to be far more than trainees, and instead are having a direct and positive impact on their employer's business offering.
“More than 2,600 employers are involved in designing the new apprenticeships standards.”
With the new Government reforms, there has never been a better time to work with an apprentice. The new frameworks place the employer at the heart of their design, meaning your staff are learning the practical skills that will directly benefit your business.
In April 2017 the Government introduced apprenticeship reforms which have significantly changed the way apprenticeships are delivered and funded across the UK.
Small employers and now required to co-invest 10% of the costs of training. And for large employers with a payroll bill of over £3 million, apprenticeship training has now become a mandatory requirement.
