What is an Apprenticeship Standard? 

The new Apprenticeship Standards (England only) have been developed by employer groups in the industry to show what an apprentice will be doing in their job role and the skills that will be required of them.  The government have introduced the Apprenticeship Standards to give students more choice as well as giving employers an increased input into their future workforce.  Typically an Apprenticeship Standard will focus on a number of gateways and an end-point assessment with an approved assessment organisation. See here for more information on the new Apprenticeship Standards.

The return on investment in Apprenticeships 

The IMI worked with a variety of businesses across the UK involving 30 apprentices to discover the actual return on investment of automotive apprenticeships.

The independently verified research results speak for themselves:

  • apprentices typically generate an ROI between 150% and 300%
  • apprentices typically generate profit within 18-24 months, and often within 12 months
  • home grown apprentice-trained technicians invariably outperform market-recruited technicians
  • ‘growing your own’ technicians through apprenticeships reduces long-term recruitment and training costs
  • apprentices learn company best practice and culture from the start and do not need ‘reprogramming’
