The Learning Trust Apprentice Programme
North Tyneside Learning Trust is supporting employers in North Tyneside to create new apprenticeships for 16-18 year old residents in the borough. The Trust is providing a bursary of £3550 which is 50% of the minimum apprenticeship salary costs for a period of 18 months.
Apprentices bring considerable value to organisations, employers, individuals and the economy. Businesses across the country are now increasingly realising the enormous benefits that apprenticeships create, not only in terms of a highly skilled workforce but also by boosting productivity and staff retention. Research shows they are an optimal way of training, developing and skilling people for the future, helping businesses to develop a workforce with the skills and qualities they need and which were often not available on the external job market. We will support any interested employer to identify the most appropriate training provider and individual to meet their business needs.
