Apprenticeship Levy: Selecting the right apprentice with Cognisess

In April 2017 the Government’s Apprenticeship Levy will begin, with all companies with a total pay bill of over £3million having to give 0.5% of this to the Government to fund apprenticeships.

With more young apprentices being hired, often with little or no previous work experience, Cognisess provides a way to select those most likely to succeed.

As an organisation hiring young apprentices, it’s easy to worry about the risks. Without prior work experience or a good knowledge of the work they would like to do, some young people may be more likely to leave a job. However, the benefits of finding the right young people who will fit the culture of your company and develop quickly are significant.

Skills Training UK – an employability provider – states that 92% of employers who take on apprentices believe that apprenticeships lead to a more motivated and satisfied workforce*. Hiring an apprentice who works their way up the ranks of your organisation means they know your business inside out.

By analysing cognitive abilities, emotional intelligence, behaviour, core skills and personality, Cognisess Deep Learn™ helps to match the right people with the right roles for their unique talents and skillset.

Apprenticeships are a great way of addressing skills shortages, and we can help to identify those who will flourish.
