The Benefits of Apprenticeships


Apprenticeships offer so many benefits for aspiring professionals and Young’s alike. These structured training programs help equip our employees with essential skills and also provide Young’s with a unique opportunity to nurture and harness talent. Whether it’s a 121 management programme or a chef academy, apprenticeships are a great way to nurture our teams and develop the talent of the future.

Our friends at Performance Learning Group have put together a  few reasons why we should be actively seeking apprentices in our business:
  • Skill Development: Apprenticeships provide hands-on training that allows individuals to learn the ropes of the hospitality industry while contributing to the workforce. This results in staff who are not only well-versed in theory but also possess practical skills. The chef academy, for example, gives commis chefs access to some of the best ingredients the country has to offer and provides the opportunity to use them in the most creative ways possible, inspiring them to be the best chefs they can be when they come back into your business.
  • Loyalty and Retention: Apprenticeships foster a sense of loyalty. Those who have been nurtured and invested in by their employers are more likely to stay with the company in the long term, reducing turnover and associated recruitment costs.
  • Increased Productivity: Apprenticeships promote productivity as apprentices learn on the job. As they become more skilled and confident, they can contribute more effectively to daily operations, ultimately benefiting the bottom line.
  • Fresh Perspectives: Apprentices often bring fresh ideas and perspectives to the workplace. Their enthusiasm and willingness to learn can lead to innovative solutions and improvements in business practices.
  • Building a Talent Pipeline: Sites that offer apprenticeships have the opportunity to build a steady pipeline of skilled workers. Apprenticeship pathways start at entry level but go all the way up to Master’s Degree level, meaning you can have apprentices at all levels of your workforce and having someone ready to step into key roles as you need them is a huge bonus.

Apprenticeships in Young’s not only offer individuals a pathway to a rewarding career but also provide us with a sustainable means of developing a skilled and loyal workforce. By investing in apprentices, we can be rewarded with highly trained, motivated employees who contribute to their own long-term success.
