Wondered if anyone has any good advice on how to keep hold of an apprentice? My one has just finished his training and has promptly handed his notice in! I Have had a good year out of him but its not really good enough considering the time and effort and money invested. I am all in favour of the scheme as it has helped my business but just seems a bit hard on employers when you put so much in and they can just walk away so easily. Any thoughts on this would be much appreciated.
