National Apprenticeship Week
The Skills & Growth Company are pleased to support this year’s National Apprenticeship Week, and to promote the huge range of options now available. During 2016, there were over 7,000 apprentices across Cheshire East during 2016 – that’s 20% higher than the national average.
Our recent YourSay survey was completed by 600 young people across Cheshire East and 25% felt the biggest barrier to securing a job was a lack of experience, so apprenticeships are a great way to earn and learn whilst securing work place skills and knowledge.
Apprenticeships are available in 1,500 job roles, covering more than 170 industries and up to 28,000 quality apprenticeship vacancies are available online at any one time at Find an Apprenticeship
The Skills & Growth Company are also actively supporting local employers to adapt to the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy that will come into force in less than a month. More information see here:
