As youth unemployment figures are set to top 1million and reach historic record highs, one of the UK’s leading work based training organisations, Intec Business Colleges plc, is already at the forefront of placing young workers into apprenticeships with leading UK employers. Intec’s Managing Director, John Herman, is certain apprenticeships will be vital in tackling youth unemployment in the UK.
“A young person undertaking an apprenticeship programme can bring vitality to any business and employing an apprentice is a very cost effective way of developing staff, improving retention, identifying potential and increasing competitiveness,” said John Herman, Managing Director of Intec Business Colleges. “Apprenticeship programmes within the workplace inevitably produce the skilled workforce the business will need in the future. Apprenticeships benefit the employer, the employee and in turn they will help the UK tackle the growing problem of youth unemployment. ”
Intec recently launched its own service aimed at supporting employers in recruiting apprentices under the age of 25. In conjunction with the National Apprenticeship Service, Intec is able to provide employers with a comprehensive recruitment package for them to employ an Apprentice. The service is simple, speedy, takes away the headache of the recruitment process and best of all its FREE!
A diverse range of private and public sector employers have already advertised their vacancies including British Gas, Ford, New Look, Sky, A Plant and local Councils. As part of the service, Intec takes full details of the vacancy specification and job description and goes through the whole process from searching and screening candidates to selecting suitable candidates for interviews. As soon as an apprentice is appointed, Intec also helps to get them settled in and carries out an induction into the Apprenticeship programme.
