I was just wondering what people's experiences of employing apprentices is - generally positve or not?
I have recruited a few in my own workplace and we've seen a few more come and go over the years. I have found it equally rewarding and challenging in the past. You have to put quite a lot in, particularly in the beginning but as they grow in competence and confidence it gets easier.
Of late, I find I'm putting so much in for such little return I got to wondering what the actual completion rates for apprenticeships are? Does every business get frustrated at times, are some types of apprenticeship easier than others? I am finding distance learning Business Admin a real challenge at the moment and am just looking for the light at the end of the tunnel!
Does anyone have any heartening stories to tell? Or should I give up now!!
