Hiring an apprentice who has been made redundant
By Sarah Wood
Younger people have been hit hardest by redundancies during the coronavirus pandemic. You can boost your organisation by filling key skill gaps and support a young worker, by hiring an apprentice who has been made redundant.
From developing creative talent to strengthening practical know-how, apprenticeships are a great way to give your organisation a competitive edge.
Covid-19 has caused some organisations to make redundancies, leaving experienced, work-ready apprentices without an employer. That's why the government has launched the Redundancy Support Service for Apprentices, giving them advice and help to find new opportunities.
For apprentices facing redundancy, working with organisations like yours could give them the chance to complete their apprenticeship. This offers lots of benefits for businesses, such as:
- Finding the skills you need to boost your organisation
- Having an apprentice with relevant experience, so you'll notice a quick return on investment
- Giving an enthusiastic apprentice who has lost their job a new start
You could also be eligible for incentive payments for hiring a new apprentice.
