1. Apprenticeships are the solution to the skills shortage

 

The logistics industry is facing a skills shortage. With an aging workforce and not enough young people in the industry to fill vacancies, employers are struggling to recruit. You can grow your own talent and gain qualified young workers who are trained in the customs and processes of your business.

2. Apprenticeships drive innovation

Apprentices gain the latest industry training and knowledge from their learning. They also bring fresh ideas and unique perspectives, helping you to adapt to the evolving demands of industry and to drive innovation.

3. Existing employees can benefit too

Existing workers who have moved into a new role can benefit from free apprenticeship training. Not only will it help with their own personal development plan, but your business will benefit from staff with a wider skill set.

4. Apprenticeships are free

Recruitment and training of young apprentices is free. Apprenticeships are also the most cost-effective way for you to up skill your existing workforce and gain industry recognised qualifications.

5. Your company could receive a £500 incentive

For every apprentice that completes their apprenticeship, you will receive a £500 incentive. Seetec is one of Northern Ireland’s leading apprenticeship training providers.
