What’s an apprentice ever done for you?
This is the slightly tongue in cheek question and title of Business Impact’s latest viral sensation. The short film developed by the leading national training an apprenticeship provider has been an instant hit and demonstrates through a rather unconventional office scene that apprentices are the backbone of many great organisations.
Business Impact wanted to use the video online to start a viral campaign and discussion around the subject, as far too often employers are left scratching their heads when they are first approached about employing apprentices. The spoof film explains that every workplace which has apprentices massively benefits from the opportunity, and the hapless ‘boss’ featured in the video is made aware that not only do apprentices make an outstanding contribution to running a business, but they are highly motivated, extremely well trained and qualified and that the apprenticeship programme covers a wide range of skills and occupations.
By the end of the video, the employer even sees the benefits to his assistant, and the message is driven home with a series of interviews arranged. The video has been a huge success, having achieved hundreds of viewings online, and also being shown at major events and showcases on best practice in employing apprentices.
David Steel, Sales Director at Business Impact commented on the production: ‘We wanted to get our message out in a quirky and interesting way, and knowing that our audience is both employers and potential apprentices, we chose a medium which would engage everyone. The humour of the piece comes from a classic Monty Python sketch from The Life of Brian and this parody hopefully does justice to the original. At Business Impact we are committed to developing outstanding apprenticeship programmes with employers and we are very proud of the achievements and contributions literally thousands of Business Impact apprentices make every year to the businesses they support. Hopefully our approach to communicating the benefits of apprenticeships will open up even greater opportunities for employers and apprentices in the future.’
