Apprentices give you the opportunity to bring future leadership talent into your organization at an affordable rate.
The brightest, most ambitious people today are looking for fast moving positions in fast growth companies. Someone looking for an apprenticeship is saying "I'm at a point in my career where I want to prioritize learning over earning." From an employer perspective, that means there's a tremendous potential to find undervalued assets.
An apprentice is someone that should have executive or management potential in the next few years.
They expect to be pushed. This gives you people that will not just do tasks you assign them, but who will identify new areas of opportunity in your business and capitalize on them.
Contractors and Consultants typically have a deep skillset in a specific area and come in to do a specific project with defined scope.
Apprentices typically will not have that deep of a skillset (though they may), but more importantly are looking at putting themselves in a situations to be team members in an ongoing capacity.
The difference see between apprentices and VAs is that in my experience, VAs are good at maintaining (executing existing SOPs) whereas apprentices have the potential to drive growth (create/improve new SOPs), given time and support.
I would base my decision on which of those outcomes I was looking for.

"We recently reached out to GetApprenticeship to help us source talent for a new product we are launching.
I realized I am not an expert in hiring and wanted to find someone who shared the drive and passion our core team has in Arizona.
Simply put, the GetApprenticeship process was insanely great.
Easy, smart, effortless.
Matt and Taylor supported me every step of the way and the candidates were top-notch.
So great, we actually hired two people!"
Generally, you want to use apprentices to fill roles that a smart, motivated person without any specific knowledge of your industry could do.
At GetApprenticeship, we're focused on three roles:
(i) Sales (BDR) Apprentice - For example: You have a proven inbound sales pipeline but need someone to do appointment setting and screening calls so you can focus on closing.
(ii) Marketing Apprentice - For example: You have a product with product/market fit but need someone to help manage your content marketing efforts by uploading articles to Wordpress, scheduling emails and social media posts, writing some articles themselves and co-ordinating with your Facebook ads vendor.
(iii) Operations Apprentice - For example: You have a marketing agency and you need someone to help manage your clients SEO and SEM campaigns. You have a written process and need it executed every week across all your client accounts.
For now, we are focusing only on remote marketing and sales and operations roles. The benefit of remote positions is that it gives you a much larger pool of candidates to select from.
“it’s been 2 days since the Apprenticeship ad was posted and I’ve already received a couple of very interesting applications.
I am really impressed by the quality of people on your list and how well educated they are in terms of knowing what business owners are looking for.”
