The Government has realised that there is a national skills shortage at present and believe the apprenticeship route is a very viable option to help fill this skills gap and help employers expand their business.
Therefore, they are committed to apprenticeships and see them as a real alternative to going to university. They are now offering a grant of £1,500 to any small business taking on a young person, who has not done so already within the last year.
Many young people, when leaving school and considering their options, are opting for the apprenticeship route as they see the benefits of pursuing this route over university.
