Considering taking on an apprentice, but are yet to take the plunge?

Oldham College is experienced in building long-term relationships with employers. We understand the administrative, logistical and developmental challenges that offering apprenticeships sometimes pose. We work alongside employers to ensure apprenticeships that are mutually beneficial for apprentice and employer.

Hiring apprentices is an effective way for businesses to nurture talent and develop a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce. Employers with apprentices report increased productivity, greater employee satisfaction, reduced staff turnover, lower recruitment costs, increased long-term security and more.

Act Now: Changes to your Apprenticeship Service account

The Apprenticeship Service has updated its process for employers registering for, and logging into, their Apprenticeship Service account.

All employers must have an account with the Apprenticeship Service in order to reserve funds for apprenticeship training, manage ongoing apprenticeships and more. 

For more information on the changes, see GOV.UK – Changes to the way you log into your Apprenticeship Service account.
