Benefits of Apprenticeships


#INVEST (col-12 col-lg-4)

Investing in your workforce

It’s never been easier to invest in your support staff workforce and improve staff retention.

Our programmes are designed so that apprentices can work towards a qualification in normal working hours, with time split 20-80 between training and their school role.

You can help your staff to gain a qualification, improve their skills and knowledge, and become better at their jobs.

Professional development goes hand in hand with job satisfaction. Investing in your staff and their development creates well-trained, well-valued employees who will make the difference in your school.

69% of employers that employ apprentices stated that they improved staff retention.

Supercharge the skillset of your support staff

Empower your workforce and help them to unleash their potential.

Your staff can learn whilst they work, enabling them to expand their knowledge, hone their skills, and widen their career prospects.

Our programmes fit with the academic year, with the curriculum directly relating to the day-to-day experience of working in a school or nursery.

Apprentices will have an impact in your school straight away – applying their newfound skills and confidence every day.

#SHARING (col-12 col-lg-4)

Sharing is caring

At United Learning Apprenticeships, we believe that the more we share, the more everyone benefits.

As part of an apprenticeship, your staff will engage with in-school mentors and apprentice peers from across the country. Through these discussions and group engagement sessions, apprentices can share best practice and knowledge, helping them to gain a deeper insight into their role.

Employees bring their new insights and shared expertise into their role, benefitting not just them – but your wider staff, too.

90% of apprentices felt they were learning transferable workplace skills that they could use in other roles.
