Five ways a business can benefit from accountancy apprenticeships
Working as an AAT approved training provider delivering level 2 and 3 apprenticeships we know how apprentices can benefit a business – here are five ways:
1. Develop expertise where is needed most
Accounting apprenticeships and qualifications can give your staff the skills to do everything from manage cash flow and chase debtors to creating financial reports and analyse trends within your accounts. This makes a big difference to the core of your business, and your bottom line.
2. Attract and retain the best talent
We all feel more empowered and motivated when we have the opportunity to develop our skills and move our careers forward. By investing in training, you can increase the value of your workforce and demonstrate your commitment to career progress. Remember apprenticeships can be used for new and existing employees.
3. Learners learn practical skills from day one
From their first day in training, students learn techniques and processes they can apply directly to the working environment. With increased focus on communication skills and professional ethics throughout the qualifications, students are better prepared for the challenges they’ll face in the workplace.
4.Study options to fit around work
The key focus is helping staff to study while they are contributing effectively to your business, there are variety of options to suit the needs of your business and employees. Point to note – Apprenticeships encompass 6 hours per week off the job training.
5. Keep one step ahead
Every AAT professional member commits to ensuring their long-term effectiveness through continued professional development. So, you can be sure your employees are up to date in terms of knowledge and skills, giving you company a competitive edge that could make all the difference.
We have our free recruitment service to help you find a new apprentice or you can also give an existing employee the opportunity to do one too.
