How An External Mentor/Coach Can Reduce Your Apprentice Turnover

Updated: Apr 8, 2018

One reason being cited by businesses, which is limiting how many apprenticeships they can deliver, is the requirement for apprentices to have a mentor/coach.

This is a key part to the effectiveness of the overall programme and apprentice retention rates.

Currently some businesses opt to do this activity in-house. Whilst this can be effective, it can also be time consuming activity and may not be given priority when there are other business demands.

A professional, experienced and skilled independent Apprentice Coach/Mentor is a more effective way of ensuring the mentoring/coaching activity is delivered and remains impartial and open.

Evidence shows that this benefits both the apprentice and ultimately the business.
