Are you an employer looking for an Apprentice for your future workforce?


Why not come along to our Apprenticeship event on 17th March to find out the benefits that Apprentices can bring to your business as well as the financial help available to start you off.
 
Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes designed around the needs of employers and combine practical experience with theoretical knowledge, helping your Apprentice learn all the skills of the job and gain a nationally recognised qualification.
 
You can use Apprenticeships to train both new and existing employees and receive Government funding to help with the cost. If you are a new employer then why not use our Apprenticeship Training Agency. They will remove all the HR, payroll and recruitment processes that an organisation would typically have to face. They will recruit the most enthusiastic and motivated candidates who are screened for suitability and then matched to the right employers.
