Apprenticeship fund available for small firms

Applications open for apprenticeships in small firms

A £200,000 apprenticeship fund is available to fund the costs of training for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that want to develop apprentices’ job skills over a 12-month period using approved apprenticeship standards.

To mark National Employability Day, the council website has information and application forms so companies can apply to Croydon Council’s Apprenticeship Fund, which last year led to 110 apprentices being recruited in 100 days.

In return, the council asks employers to provide a good-quality apprenticeship; offer a permanent job after 12 months, where possible; and work towards accreditation with the borough’s Good Employer Charter that promotes equality and diversity in the workplace, fair wages and job creation.
