Boost For Apprenticeships
A South Coast college is aiming to create 100 new apprenticeship placements within 100 days, starting this month.
It's part of a drive to help get more young people on a path into employment in the area.
Figures from the Department for Education (DfE) show that over 15% of young people across England are not in education, employment or training. Apprenticeships offer vocational training designed specifically for the job role, which then leads to nationally recognised qualifications.
Eastleigh College is working in partnership with local business leaders to create 100 new apprenticeship opportunities during this campaign, which will conclude on National Apprenticeship Week, 11th - 15th March 2013.
Apprenticeships are being offered in Hospitality, Health and Social Care, Childcare, Business Administration, Hairdressing and Beauty. All offer flexible start dates in January, February and March 2013.
In his recent visit to Eastleigh College, Business Secretary Vince Cable commented:
"One of the things that come through blindingly obvious here is the very good working links between the College and the local business community. I think the old days when education was in one box and business was in another is long
Matt Slade, who took an apprenticeship with Eastleigh College at Applewood Joinery, says:
''Since I joined the company, I've been given ample opportunity to improve my skills, plus they encourage you to branch
out with your training and do more than the level that the job requires. I've also been supported by the College; my tutor has been brilliant and very helpful. I'd definitely recommend Apprenticeships.''
