Employers want apprentices, not graduates

Results of a poll of more than 500 employers reveal that many would rather take on an apprentice than hire a graduate. The findings paint a picture of a return to the days when school-leavers were articled or took up apprenticeships and started earning a wage before returning to some form of work-placed study. The poll, conducted by City and Guilds, shows that 52% of those companies which already recruit apprentices believe they offer greater value than hiring graduates.
