More firms announce new apprenticeships

As National Apprenticeship Week (3-9 February) draws to a close, Recruiter brings readers more UK employers making apprenticeship announcements.

Blenheim Palace has a record number of apprentices (pictured) in business training in areas such as game, farming, HR, building, marketing and customer service. The organisation reveals in the past year a total of 11 apprentices have completed their training, with a further 19 currently working towards completing their apprenticeship.

Eden Futures, a specialist provider of support and enablement for adults with learning disabilities, mental ill-health and autism, has launched a scheme offering young people the opportunity to become health and social care apprentice support workers. The scheme, supported by provider Lifetime Training, offers on the job training to the five selected applicants, while studying for a nationally recognised formal qualification. Eden Futures hopes to attract 16-18-year-olds in Stafford, Telford, Nottingham, Coventry and Nuneaton to apply.

Leicester’s Hospitals has announced that over 500 apprentices have enrolled at the Trust since its Apprentice Education Programme was introduced in 2017. Over half of Leicester’s Hospitals apprentices were trained at the Trust’s own Apprenticeship and Development Centre, a learning facility, accredited by Ofsted. The centre specialises in health and social care, providing a route to develop the next generation of health and social care professionals across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR). Other apprenticeships, delivered in partnership with third party learning providers, cover a range of areas including science and business administration, such as HR, finance and communication.
