so why are science based companies not recruiting?
- “It is too complicated to recruit and train an apprentice”
- “There is not an apprenticeship for laboratory based science”
- “Apprentices will make too many mistakes”
These are just a few of the common misconceptions employers in science based companies list as reasons for not taking on apprentices. However, the reality couldn’t be further from the truth. Employing an apprentice is a simple process – funded by the government and supported through a flexible framework that caters for the needs of laboratory based trainees.
Apprenticeships in science can benefit your company by supporting business growth, creating a ‘talent pipeline’ and increasing company productivity. With the right training and laboratory competence, a well trained apprentice is not a risk but a significant advantage.
