SWA Discusses How Apprenticeships Are Benefitting Businesses Around The Country
SWA, a training provider based in the UK, discusses how apprenticeships are helping people to get jobs in businesses and helping businesses improve their staff.
October 24, 2012 (Newswire.com) - UK training provider SWA discusses the benefits of apprenticeships to businesses and the apprentices doing the work.
Apprenticeships are learning courses which employers can put employees through in order for them to learn new skills that will benefit the business. These new skills will also benefit the employee by giving them a qualification in a specific subject, such as business administration or customer service.
In the last year the number of people learning under an apprenticeship scheme has increased by 63%, according to The Guardian, a news publication. This is largely due to the fact that many people are finding it harder to get a job, due to the economic slump.
A Customer Service Representative from SWA commented, "The apprenticeships we offer cover a wide range of subjects. The overall benefit of these apprenticeships is to the employee, because they're the one getting the qualification at the end of it. We often hear of businesses putting their staff through an apprenticeship and taking on new staff to go through one because it's a way for the business to train their staff up while they work."
An apprenticeship is a great way for a business to train their employees in-house and reap the rewards from the skills these employees learn. Many businesses have used apprenticeships in order to train new staff to be managers, and gain the benefits of a manager that understands how the company works effectively.
Those taking part in an apprenticeship have an amazing opportunity given to them. Businesses always value employees with skills, and the more skills someone learns, the more the business will value them. By taking part in as much learning as possible, an employee can quickly become a valuable asset to their business.

Their consultancy services are brilliant for helping businesses to highlight where they could improve themselves in terms of managing people, customers and generally improving their operations.
