TARGETjobs Breakfast News: Apprenticeships
TARGETjobs' Breakfast News this month focused on apprenticeships. The event took place in London on 26 April 2012.
After a welcome from Simon Rogers, Bryan Finn of Business Economics Ltd began by giving a comprehensive analysis of the macro economic factors currently affecting graduate recruitment.
Philip Taylor, star of The BBC's The Apprentice, talked about the benefits to businesses and the support available in the development of a programme based on his work in the City of London Corporation.
Graduates vs apprentices
Marcus Body, Head of Research at Work Group, explored the business rationale for graduate schemes and apprenticeship schemes, relative to each other and to standard lateral hiring.
The world turned upside down?
John Morewood, Senior Apprenticeships and Qualifications Specialist at HSBC Bank plc, looked at how a few years ago graduate recruitment was all the rage and apprenticeships were dismissed as relics of a bygone age. Now, apprenticeships are enjoying a resurgence with some 'experts' saying they could replace graduate schemes in a few years.
