PROVIDE HANDS-ON TRAINING
Finding and keeping good people is a huge challenge – particularly in Cambridgeshire with new companies moving in and many expanding fast. Apprenticeships allow employers to recruit and train young people with the necessary skills to succeed in their business and industry. We run events to help businesses get started with apprenticeships and to meet training providers. Employers can post work experience vacancies on our website Time to Step Up so young people can see what’s available locally.
Apprenticeships are a great way to move from education into work, allowing young people to learn and gain experience while earning a salary. There are now higher and degree level apprenticeships available in a wide range of industries, such as engineering, finance or digital media. We actively promote apprenticeships as an option for students after they have achieved their GCSEs or A-levels.
We run events throughout the year for students, staff and parents, giving them a chance to meet apprentice employers and learn what’s involved. We also share advice and the best local apprenticeship vacancies in our regular parents newsletter – sign up for this here.
Get in touch if you would like to find out more about apprenticeships and how to offer them to your students, or how to take an apprentice on as an employer.
