50,000 OPPORTUNITIES TO REALISE YOUR POTENTIAL

With fewer University places available,additional Government funding is being released to give an extra 50,000 people the opportunity to gain an Apprenticeship.

If you are considering taking on an Apprentice, now is a great time, as thousands of school leavers begin looking for their first steps into a career.

With the recent success in the country’s high GCSE and A-Level results, now is the time for businesses to recruit an Apprentice from the pool of talent out there.  With the release of additional funding employers can also seek to train their existing staff and recruit junior managers, offering quality roles to A-Level students as an alternative to the university clearing process.

“We will increase the number of Apprenticeship places, and we are committed to improving the quality of Apprenticeships to make them better suited to the needs of employers and learners.  The Government’s decision to redeploy £150 million of  our savings in 2010-11, creating an additional 50,000 places, demonstrates our commitment to high-quality, employer-owned Apprenticeships” (Vincent Cable: Secretary of State, Business, innovation and Skills)

Recruiting young people has never been easier. ‘Apprenticeship Vacancies’ is the official online recruitment system for Apprenticeships in England and is managed by the National Apprenticeship Service.
The system enables quality vacancies from employers like you to be viewed and applied for nationally by thousands of candidates that register onto our system, making it easy for you to attract and recruit Apprentices.

Apprenticeships are a great way for young people to start their career and many are keen to take this route.  Each Apprenticeship framework is developed by employers (through Sector Skills Councils and Sector Bodies) to suit the sector in which they sit.  There is empirical evidence that Apprenticeships bring real value to employers, learners and the economy as a whole.

Potential Apprentices can register with ‘Apprenticeship Vacancies’, an online recruitment tool that matches Apprentices with prospective employers.  They can search for local and national vacancies in their required job role and level.

This system also has several key benefits to employers:

  • It is a national system, it opens up your vacancy to a wider pool of candidates actively interested in Apprenticeships
  • A diverse range of private and public sector employers have already advertised their vacancies including British Gas, Ford, New Look, Sky and Cable&Wireless
  • Flexibility in who manages the whole recruitment process, your learning provider or you
  • The options to direct candidates who see your vacancy on the system to apply directly to your own website job page
  • You can search to find learning providers who deliver Apprenticeships in the sector you want to recruit for
  • The system is supported by a dedicated National Apprenticeship Service team across England

‘Golden Hellos’ to Employers to take Apprentices

The National Apprenticeship Service (NAS) is to provide up to 5,000 ‘golden hellos’ of £2,500 to encourage employers to take on new 16-17 year old apprentices, worth a total of £12.5m in a short term measure available to potential employers of apprentices between New Year and April 2010.

The £2,500 is in addition to the costs of training with the funding administered by NAS, who will also be able to support employers in finding a training provider and recruiting an apprentice. Employers will commit to taking on a new or additional apprentice in paid employment for the duration of their training. The Minimum Apprenticeships Wage requirement (£95 per week for 16-18 year olds) will apply. In return up to 5,000 employers will receive a £2,500 bonus and NAS will cover the full Apprenticeship training costs, as it would for any 16-18 year old Apprentice.

The funding will target those employers who would not otherwise have been in a position to recruit an Apprentice at this point in time or who are able to offer more Apprenticeship places than they would otherwise have done. Interested employers should call the NAS help line on 08000 150 600 or view the full article here.
