Time and attendance systems are ideal for apprenticeship management
Time and attendance systems can help firms taking a large number of apprentices on board streamline their enrolment processes, and this is particularly important nowadays, as 30,084 new apprenticeships have been pledged by employers as part of the recently concluded National Apprenticeship Week 2016.
Greene King committed to hiring 10,000 apprentices (up from 2,000 in 2015), while Microsoft and partners also announced plans to recruit 4,500, BT pledging 1,000, Deloitte 200 and Kwik Fit 150, pledges have been made by hundreds of businesses around the country. Other companies that have pledged new apprenticeships include BMW, Addleshaw Goddard LLP, Fortnum & Mason, Virgin Media, British Airways, Prezzo, and the Victoria and Albert Museum.
Traineeships, which give young people the work preparation training, English, maths and work experience needed to get an apprenticeship or other job, also got a boost during the week with employers large and small, including Halfords Ltd and Chelmsford JCP pledging 1,770 traineeship positions.
Skills Minister Nick Boles said: “This week I’ve travelled the country meeting apprentices doing the most incredible jobs, from cooking mussels at Rick Stein’s restaurant to fixing helicopters for the Royal Navy.
Apprenticeships offer working people the jobs and training they need to build a great career. An apprenticeship really can take you anywhere.
Employers have pledged more than 30,000 new apprenticeships this week. That means more than 30,000 more life changing opportunities for working people.”
