Apprenticeships are work-based programmes aimed at improving the skills of employees, incorporating both technical competencies and interpersonal skills. Apprenticeships reward both companies and employees alike; staff are motivated and competent, receiving a regular income and gaining transferable skills to advance in their chosen career. In 2014/15, apprenticeship participation increased to 871,800, the highest number on record.
The BPIF is the leading apprenticeship provider within the print industry, with course durations ranging from 12-36 months. Subjects include Business Administration, Customer Service and Mechanised Print Finishing & Binding. We have formed the BPIF Apprentice Council so that apprentices have the opportunity to shape the delivery of their training programme. Let the BPIF do the work for you: our BPIF Training Co-ordinators will advertise and arrange interviews for you if required.
