Activate Enterprise continues to change the perception of apprenticeships with top businesses

Activate Enterprise – the largest apprenticeship provider in the Thames Valley – this week (22 Saturday) took to the podium at one of the UK’s biggest business forums, promoting the benefits of introducing apprenticeships.

Pablo Lloyd – Chief Executive for Activate Enterprise – spoke at the Brittelstand Symposium, a forum set-up for leaders of medium-sized businesses, who have an annual turnover of more than £1million.

The event – hosted by Business United – was held at The Mansion House in Reading and also focussed on what support businesses need to perform in the coming years, followin
g this summer’s Brexit vote.

Whilst at the event, Pablo also emphasised to visitors how the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy – set to be launched in April next year – represents a great opportunity for businesses to invest in their organisation’s future through apprenticeships.

Pablo said: “It was fantastic to demonstrate to business leaders from across the UK the impact apprenticeships are – and increasingly will – have on businesses, helping to unearth young new talent.

“As business leaders – we know how valuable it is to recruit well and invest in future talent. Our clients use apprenticeships to build skilled and loyal teams, as opposed to having to worry about a regular turnover of staff and its associated cost.

“Apprenticeships are increasingly attractive to young, talented people. New apprentices bring new, innovative ideas. They may not have 25 years’ experience in a particular field of work – but they bring fresh ideas, which may otherwise be lost to competitors.”
