Have you ever thought about employing an apprentice?
Did you know?
There are many more reasons to employ an apprentice and not enough people know about them.
The LEP Apprenticeship Promise is a Cheshire & Warrington initiative to enable businesses to understand the benefits of hiring an apprentice and getting the word out there.
You may not be able to take on an apprentice at the moment but as a member of a networking group you could invite the National Apprenticeship Service meet with you, why not sign the LEP Apprenticeship Promise to do this?
You may already hire apprentices but did you know you could hire an apprentice at level 3 and 4? Only a third of Cheshire & Warrington’s apprentices are level 3, why not sign the LEP Apprenticeship Promise to take on higher level apprentices?
Do you employ large numbers of apprentices? If so could you mentor a SME on the merits of employing apprentices? If so please sign the LEP Apprenticeship Promise.
The LEP has identified the growth and development of Apprenticeships as its first action to achieve its aim of a skilled and productive workforce in Cheshire & Warrington. Please support this initiative by signing up to the Apprenticeship Promise.

C&W is also launching its Apprentiecship Training Agency. If you would like to engage with Apprentiecships but are unable to commit to employing them directly the ATA could source, arrange and host them for you.
