That is the opinion of Phil Flaxton, chief executive of Work Wise UK, who said that more and more people are likely to come into the jobs market through apprenticeships and firms need to be aware of the benefits this can provide.
Over the last 20 years, he explained that there has been greater emphasis placed on education and getting a degree and, to a certain extent, this is limiting chances for people who are not university-educated.
"If an employer has got the choice of taking on somebody with a degree or somebody without a degree, the chances are, you are going to take the one with a degree," Mr Flaxton said.
He added that more organisations need to reproduce schemes to train young people through apprenticeships to help give balance to the jobs market.
It comes after a recent review led by the Employer Reference Group, the Confederation of British Industry and several large companies called for a simplification in the way apprentices and temporary workers are taken on.
Following the publication of the report, skills minister John Hayes said that firms will also receive better guidance to help them manage the recruitment, training and assessment of staff more efficiently and cost effectively.
