Enterprise commits to apprenticeships and training

With 77 apprentices currently at Enterprise, and more than 60 starting soon at Enterprise Flex-E-Rent, DRIVE examines apprenticeship opportunities at Enterprise and why people are now choosing this route. Plus – Enterprise is donating 20% of its apprenticeship levy to third party initiatives to drive supplier development.

Apprenticeships are an increasingly popular study option. Apprenticeship participation stood at 814,800 people in England in 2017/2018, and over 90% of apprenticeships currently go into work or further training. 97% of apprentices said their ability to do the job had improved and it’s clear to see why.

Apprenticeships give people paid employment while they study for a formal qualification. Apprentices usually attend a weekly class at a college or training centre, and the aim by the end of the course is to have gained the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in a chosen career or progress into the next apprenticeship level.

There are two strands of apprenticeships available at Enterprise. One enables existing employees to upskill, and the other is for new learners joining the company. Enterprise offers a wide range of qualifications, including business administration, accountancy, customer service, infrastructure technician and project management.

In 2017, the government introduced the apprenticeship levy, which is a sum that all UK employers with a turnover of more than £3 million per year must set aside to fund training.

Enterprise is gifting 20% of its levy to two initiatives to support supplier development. One is centred on upskilling employees working at bodyshop networks and involves working with Autoraise, a replacement market business partner. The other is a female leadership programme, which has been developed through Enterprise’s relationship with WeConnect, a network that promotes businesses run by women.
