Financial Services Apprenticeships

An apprentice would make a fantastic addition to your team

What is an apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a great way of boosting the skills of your team. It is a combination of employment and relevant training resulting in a specialised skillset and respected qualifications.

Apprentices boost productivity and morale while reducing staff turnover and recruitment costs. 83% of those who employ an apprentice would recommend the scheme to others.1

You can recruit someone new to your team or offer an apprenticeship to an existing member of staff. Either way, Simply Academy are here to support you at every step including funding, recruiting and training.

Who can train as an apprentice?

Apprenticeships are available to more people than you might realise, as long as the candidate is:

  • Over the age of 16
  • Living in England
  • Not in full time education

Many people haven’t considered apprenticeships because they don’t realise that their team is already eligible for training. In fact, apprenticeships can be offered to existing members of staff to enhance their skills and boost morale.

Alternatively, you can specifically recruit a new apprentice for employment and training.
