More and more employers in Oxfordshire are recognising the benefits of employing Apprentices and Oxfordshire Apprenticeships is here to keep the momentum building.
Taking on an Apprentice can be more cost effective than hiring trained staff
The number of local employers who are using Apprenticeships to get the skilled workers they need for the coming years is on the increase. And because government funding is available in many cases, those organisations benefit from lower overall training and recruitment costs.
Grow your own talent to meet the needs of your business
In any workplace, it’s rewarding to grow your own talent and watch them progress from trainee to being a key part of your team. Apprenticeship training is available for hundreds of job roles and is flexible to suit the needs of your business.

We are happy to visit you at your premises and support you through the process of recruiting an Apprentice. Once your vacancy is live we can promote it via Facebook, Twitter, on our website and at events. Have a look at our Employer Toolkit, which takes you through the things to consider when employing an Apprentice for the first time.

Isn't everything about to change?
You've probably heard about changes in the Apprenticeship system which are due to come into effect in April 2017. See our Apprenticeship Levy page for more on that and get in touch if you have any comments, concerns or questions about what lies ahead.
