Apprenticeships top 200!
Jake said, “I was delighted that 161 young people started their Apprenticeship during the 100 Apprenticeships in 100 Days.
“However, the latest update is outstanding due to local businesses taking up the challenge of the campaign. 10 Apprentices started their apprenticeships after the end of the campaign or have a start date agreed.
“In addition, there are 32 Apprenticeship opportunities where the employer and providers are in discussions or they are advertising for apprentices. This is all very promising and will no doubt lead to full Apprenticeships.
“This is a great achievement and local businesses are to be congratulated on taking our target of 100 to over 200.
“It’s not too late for businesses to participate in the Apprenticeship scheme. If you are interested in participating, please contact my office on 01706 215547 for details.”
