Attracting the best young people -The Apprenticeship scheme?

In many businesses, the graduate training programme has been a long held and well delivered scheme for graduates to enter the business and learn about the different elements of it by touching various departments and then find the role in the business that fits their skills the best. This structure has been around for some time, and is generally considered by both employers and graduates as an excellent method.
In fact, graduates often seek out employees with these structured programmes rather than just a job, because they give them the best chance of success and career development.
However, increasingly, the recruitment pool for businesses is more diverse than simply graduates. Major players such as the big four accountancy firms for example are taking school leavers for the first time, and have devised schemes to bring these young, talented individuals through.
The main reason for this change has been the significant increase in debt burden that graduates are expected to take, based upon increasing tuition fees.
In addition to this, and if we look at the market more widely, we can see that young people, businesses, educational establishments and the government are also placing higher importance on vocational qualifications.
So with more young people coming into businesses at an earlier age, and through vocational qualifications such as apprenticeships, are businesses putting in place the ‘apprentice training schemes’ that will ensure that the young people they take on outside of their graduate recruitment, have the same chance of success?
