Abstract:

About half of all apprentices don't complete their training and the majority leave in the first year. A new website, 'Employing apprentices', aims to give employers the skills to reduce the attrition rate. The designers of the website speak about how to get a better match between employers and apprentices and best practice in on-the-job training.
