Spencer Mehlman, managing director of notgoingtouni.co.uk, said it is important for both the employer and the employee, as apprenticeships give young people access to work and they teach them skills.
"For employers, apprentices are the next generation of employees. They are the workforce of the future and investing time and effort in developing them is every business and industry's responsibility," he added.
Mr Mehlman added that young people may not have lots of experience, but they are usually grounded in all of the most up-to-date skills, technology and techniques, which is useful to have in any business.
Meanwhile, Tara Daynes, human resources and training consultant at taradayneshr.com, recently said that people hoping to work in sales jobs and other positions will find apprenticeships can provide "focused, structured learning".
