Offer an apprenticeship
Apprentices are a fantastic resource to be able to add to your company. With 96% of employers that take on an apprentice reporting a benefit to their business, and the average apprenticeship increasing business productivity by £214 a week, what are you waiting for?
Speak to students
Hearing about the success of someone who was once in their exact position can really inspire students. There are various ways you can help; by coming to talk to a group of students about your area of expertise, giving masterclasses or taking part in a careers Q&A.
Offer a work experience opportunity
What better way for out students to understand working life than getting real, hands-on work experience placement? It’s not only invaluable for students, but business employees can gain management and supervisory experience. In addition, you could get a helping hand around the workplace for free!
