A new way to source talent

Registered Apprenticeship is a tried-and-true approach to prepare workers for jobs - and meet the business needs for a highly-skilled workforce. Apprenticeships combine on-the-job learning with job-related instruction and lead to increasing skills and wages.

What's in it for my business?

  • Are you satisfied with your employee recruitment process? Is it working for you?
  • How long does it take to see a return on investment of a new hire?
  • Do you lose talent to your competitors?
  • Do you have retiring top talent with historical knowledge that will leave a gap in information in your company?
  • Is there a more cost-effective means of accomplishing your goal besides contracting talent?

Registered Apprenticeships could meet your needs by providing:

  • A qualified, custom and stable workforce
  • Employees who start working from day one
  • Proven training model
  • Ability to cultivate skilled talent
  • Higher productivity
