Longer apprenticeships 'better for young people'

Embarking on longer apprenticeships is more likely to prepare young people for the world of work than brief tenures that often do not teach team enough about being in a full-time job, it has been claimed.

According to Ian Harper, chief executive of ATG Training, long-term apprenticeships are more beneficial because it is a case of making a "serious investment" in a young person's development as a new employee.

"Therefore, a long-term programme is always likely to be better than a short-term programme. It is not just the core skills that a young person needs to pick up," the expert noted.

Over a longer period of time, young people get to experience the other parts of the business, develop their customer service skills, and learn the best way in which they interact with customers and internal clients.

"So, a long-term apprenticeship allows far more opportunity to pick up the other skills that we all need and want in a job," he added.
