Worcestershire businesses and young people will benefit from a £50,000 boost to help increase the number of apprentices.
The money has been invested by Wyre Forest District Council, and companies will be able to apply for up to £7,500 to support the hire of local apprentices. The council has been working in partnership with Kidderminster College to deliver the Apprenticeship Grant Scheme for the past five years.
Councillor John Campion said “The scheme has so far helped more than 50 local employers and the feedback has been very positive. We are keen to offer apprenticeships to higher level apprentices in 2016/17 as we have in the past three years as this has been welcomed by employers and apprentices alike.”
Jennie Short, head of department for employer engagement programmes at Kidderminster College, added: “The extension of the Apprenticeship Grant Scheme for a fifth year highlights the value and importance that is rightly being placed on apprenticeship programmes across the Wyre Forest.
“We are delighted to be involved in this partnership again and are really keen to see this year’s grant supporting more young people to progress to higher-level apprenticeships.”
