Why employers are embracing degree apprenticeships

Employers including Accenture, BT, Ford, Goldman Sachs, GSK, IBM, John Lewis, Lloyds Bank and Virgin Media are choosing digital degree apprenticeships to attract and retain top digital talent. Here are a few reasons why:

Attract new talent: by the prospects of working for a prestigious company, earning a salary and gaining a degree with no loan to repay.

Energise existing teams: employers report that their degree apprentices are highly motivated, enthusiastic members of staff who quickly develop skills and have an energising impact on the colleagues they work with.

Increase staff retention: apprentices are more loyal than other types of employee. In a recent survey of businesses, 56% said apprentices stay in the business longer than other recruits.

Apprenticeship levy returns: degree apprenticeships are an ideal way for levy-paying employers to spend their entitlement – especially if your company has traditionally recruited at graduate level for digital roles
