Are you looking for skilled workers?

"As we’ve grown and expanded, we’ve found it increasingly difficult to recruit staff with the right skills and attributes. Recruitment is one of our key challenges."

If so, why not hire an apprentice?

 

A growing number of companies are doing so, with 96% of businesses reporting benefits from their apprentices. Most training providers listed on this web-site go to great lengths to help employers like you with the selection and recruitment process.

A recent study by the Centre for Economic and Business research found that in order to keep pace with the 23,783 people employed in the maintenance and repair of classic and heritage vehicles, employers need to recruit over 665 apprentices each year.

The Heritage Engineering Apprenticeship Standard was written by employers, for employers.
