Essex Business Podcast: Apprenticeships – are they a cost-effective way of investing in your business’s future?

by Kim Aaronricks

Over the past few years apprenticeships have begun to increase in popularity again, and with skills shortages often quoted as a key issue facing organisations in a range of sectors, we look at what is involved in taking on an apprentice and the long and short term benefits they can bring to an organisation.

In this episode we talk to Toni Marshall, Employer Engagement Officer for Adult Community Learning in Essex , about how they support both apprentices and employers, and David Malthouse, Chelmsford Managing Director at First Intuition , who specialise in high quality accountancy training, explains how apprenticeships offer excellent opportunities for individuals and companies.
