During 2015/16 there were 18,320 apprenticeship starts across the Liverpool City Region (LCR), of which 2,390 were here in St Helens. Most of these apprenticeships were delivered by a range of local providers, including St Helens College, St Helens Chamber and others.
As an employer you are probably aware of the benefits that hiring an apprentice can bring. They are often enthusiastic, eager to learn and can be a great attribute to your organisation. In turn you get the opportunity to mould an employee to your company ethos as well as giving a young person entry on to a career path that would have been blocked to them otherwise.
The LCR Apprenticeship Hub, a collaborative group with representation from across the region, can provide an employer with independent and non-judgemental advice around a wide range of options that would be available for your apprenticeships including recruitment, training provision and the availability of subsidy funding.
