Bring in skills and growth with an apprentice
Apprenticeships can give your workforce the practical skills and qualifications your organisation needs now and in the future.
Leeds City Council have teamed up with national organisation Creative and Cultural Skills for a free briefing, which takes place at The Carriageworks Theatre on Millennium Square on March 11 from 2pm until 4.30pm.
The event will give arts and cultural organisations a chance to find out more about the Creative Employment Programme
. The £15m Arts Council England fund is designed to support arts and cultural organisations with the cost of recruiting apprentices and paid interns. For more information or to register your interest, please refer to the Documents section or click here
Thousands of Leeds companies of all sizes and sectors, from MOT centres to law firms, are taking on apprentices. (Please click on the Documents section on the left hand side for further details of how one such company has seen the benefits of recruiting apprentices or watch this short video .)
We’ve given free, impartial and expert advice and support to 600 employers in Leeds with their recruitment needs, and can guide you through the red tape and towards the right framework, learning provider and apprentice.
Just ring 0113 2475862 or email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can help you bring in the skills you need to grow.
And there is more help for smaller companies. There’s a £1500 grant for any employers taking on an apprentice for the first time, and the Leeds Apprenticeship Training Agency (ATA) which reduces risk and hassle by acting as the employer.
