  2. Reward your current employees
    Apprenticeships aren’t just for new employees. They're a great opportunity to increase your current staff's skills, knowledge and confidence. Whether you do this or hire new apprentices, you'll be eligible for government funding.
  3. Create a motivated workforce
    Apprentices can often provide better value, with increased loyalty, enthusiasm and motivation. Businesses say apprentices bring ambition, a fresh perspective and an entrepreneurial spirit the standard recruitment process rarely provides.

    85% of employers would recommend apprenticeships to others. (Source: Apprenticeship evaluation 2021: Employer survey.)
  4. Build a more diverse and inclusive governance team
    Whether you hire school leavers or experienced workers, apprentices can bring fresh skills, experiences and ideas. There’s no upper age limit – your apprentices must simply be over 16, not be in full-time education, and have lived in the UK or EEA for over three years, so it may help demonstrate your commitment to inclusivity as an employer.
  5. Build practical skills
    Apprentices will study a governance qualification accredited by the CGIUKI, gaining practical governance training, professional standards and essential business skills.
  6. Save on training and recruitment costs
    Apprentices are a really cost-effective way to hire and train staff. You'll get government funding towards training costs.
