Apprenticeship is an essential training component which lays the groundwork for a successful long term career in the trades and at the same time, trains the next generation of skilled workers to meet the high standards required by industry.
Higher skilled workers are not only a precondition to your business’s productivity but also needed to meet the anticipated challenges of the future. A competent labour force increases product quality, competitiveness, customer satisfaction, and profit margin.
For employers new to hiring apprentices, setting up a program and figuring out what they need to do can be daunting. It doesn’t need to be. Our partner organizations have developed a number of resources for employers with information about everything from identifying supports to hiring and training an apprentice.
