Today’s research, launched during National Apprenticeship Week, reveals that whilst there has been clear progress in the number of young people considering apprenticeships, there are wide-ranging concerns around the financial benefits, with sentiment around pay prospects at their lowest level since 2019.
Apprentices are key to Redrow’s business and account for 10% of all employees, and Redrow finds having apprentices in the business highly beneficial due to the fresh ideas they bring to the table and the way they motivate others in the workforce due to the opportunities they provide for mentorship.
Leading UK housebuilder Redrow today launches its annual report on attitudes toward apprenticeships and careers in construction.
Leading UK housebuilder Redrow’s second annual research report, Building better apprenticeships: Delivering skills to drive UK productivity, has discovered that the perception of construction as an apprenticeship pathway has improved with a 14% increase (62%) of young people considering a job in the sector this year.
