University isn’t for everyone. It can be a great environment to grow and learn in, but it’s expensive and (despite what various careers advisors would have you believe) it’s not a one-size-fits-all solution for everyone’s learning styles and needs.
While some people thrive in an academic environment, others benefit from getting stuck in and getting involved out in the workplace. Not everyone has the conviction to take their next step with an apprenticeship, but those who do can learn a lot by getting neck-deep in a company’s processes and procedures, adding tons of value to the company while they’re at it. The team member grows with the business, and the business grows with the team member. It’s a virtuous cycle.
Kieran is just the latest team member to wrap up an apprenticeship with us, and it’s been brilliant watching him grow, thrive and become an integral part of Team Sycous.
An apprenticeship isn’t just about giving great talent skills and intimate knowledge of your organisation, though – apprenticeships grow loyalty and retention (something that’s particularly important in a business as specific and technical as ours). You get in on the ground floor, bringing in talent at an early age. For us, apprenticeships are a crucial element of how we weave the fabric of our business.
The apprentice isn’t the only team member who benefits, either. Providing them with the training and attention they need drives more established colleagues to enhance their communication and mentoring skills, as well as sharpen up their own knowledge in their job role.
That’s not to mention how invigorating it is to have a fresh injection of spirit into your organisation! Fresh minds bring fresh ideas (that aren’t just, ‘well we did it this way at my last place’) to the table, pushing the business forward with new thinking and not letting the veterans rest on their laurels.
And yep, you bet there’s a warm gooey feeling that comes from watching someone grow and develop in such a short period of time. If you get it right (and we don’t mind saying that Kieran and our other former protégés are proof we’re doing something right) it’s extremely rewarding to see an apprentice succeed and level up. It’s an addictive feeling and it’s hard to resist bringing the next young Padawan into the fold.
Apprentices are the skilled workers of the future and we don’t plan to sit around and wait for the future to come to us!
