The Apprenticeship Challenge
Warrington Collegiate, in partnership with the Warrington Guardian, is repeating its successful apprenticeship 100-day challenge. The first Warrington 100 Apprenticeship Campaign saw Warrington Collegiate exceed its target by 32 per cent, creating 132 apprenticeships overall.
Now is a great time to consider apprenticeships. Whether you are an employer looking for an apprentice or an individual considering becoming an apprentice, there are many benefits to be had from the scheme. Over the summer, a report from the CBI (Confederation of British Industry) suggested that the growing demand for high level technical skills cannot be met by traditional university courses alone and that it’s important for young people to consider apprenticeships as a viable alternative. If you are an employer who is new to apprenticeships, Warrington Collegiate, supported by the National Apprenticeship Service, will provide all the free advice and guidance you need to get started.
Discover the VarietyApprenticeships have undergone a makeover in recent years, with more than 250 apprenticeship roles providing around 1,400 employment pathways on offer, from traditional industries such as bricklaying and site joinery to exciting opportunities in accountancy, IT and social media. Apprenticeships, often referred to as work-based training, offer a wide range of benefits to individuals, business and the economy. For the apprentice they offer the opportunity to earn money, learn job specific skills, improve employability outcomes, receive training and gain valuable qualifications. Young people leaving school benefit both financially and in terms of career progression, allowing them to stand out from the crowd in today’s competitive job market. Apprenticeships offer employers the opportunity to harness fresh talent, fill skills shortages, improve competitiveness and increase productivity.
