Plea to companies over apprentices in Keighley
11:41am Tuesday 11th March 2014 in Keighley
Small businesses in Keighley are being urged to take on apprentices.
The plea has been issued to coincide with National Apprenticeship Week, which began on Monday.
And to encourage take-up, an Apprentice-makers scheme has been launched.
“This enables those considering becoming an employer of apprentices to access independent advice and valuable peer-to-peer mentoring from individuals already committed to supporting apprenticeships within their own business,” said a spokesman.
Figures show less than ten per cent of small businesses offer apprenticeships.
Visit apprenticemakers.org.uk for further details about the scheme.
