Grow your business with an apprentice

Employing an apprentice is easier than you think and there’s help and support available.Peter Savory

It’s an effective way for any organisation to grow talent and develop a motivated and skilled workforce.

The cost of employing an apprentice will vary depending on the size of your company, type of apprenticeship and age of the apprentice.

KindaKafe in Norwich hosts 18-year-old Peter Savory as a business apprentice, as part of the TrAC Apprenticeships Norfolk project. Last March, Peter won Norfolk Apprentice of the Year.

Tom Gaskin, Social Enterprise Development Manager at KindaKafe, explains: “Peter oversees our social media channels, which has resulted in a substantial increase in engagement.

“This has helped us raise more funds through ticket sales for events and increased awareness of our charitable work.

“It’s great we have an apprentice we can rely on and who is happy to question the way we do things. Employing an apprentice can be a real asset to your business whilst helping to nurture local talent.”

The Apprenticeships Norfolk Network offers support for businesses interested in employing an apprentice.
