When it was announced as part of the Summer Budget in 2015, the Apprenticeship Levy was met with mixed reviews. Although the majority felt it would be a great way to shape the future workforce, many feared the extra pressure it would place on an already stretched service.
For a large portion of employers, experience of running apprentice schemes to this scale will be limited. Putting the schemes together, including arranging the appropriate training, is one thing but then attracting sufficient applicants is a completely different prospect altogether.
The well-publicised figure of three million apprentices by 2020 will require mass recruitment on a huge scale. In an effort to provide a helping hand, public sector recruitment specialists, Jobsgopublic, have released a brand new white paper ‘Preparing for Apprentice Recruitment’.
The white paper presents findings from an in-depth research project in candidate perceptions and motivations regarding apprenticeships. It also offers key insights gained from nearly two decades of public sector recruitment experience.
