Pertemps uses Apprenticeship Levy funding to finance 30 apprentices

Recruitment agency Pertemps has partnered with training provider Aurelia Training to deliver up to 30 apprenticeships at Bournville Rugby Club in Birmingham.

As part of its corporate social responsibility programme, Pertemps, which has its headquarters in nearby Meriden, will finance the partnership to help deliver Level 3 Community Sport and Health Officers (CSHO) by using Apprenticeship Levy funding of £250k.

This will give Bournville rugby players the opportunity to work with community engagement specialist Community Group, headed by founder and former rugby player in the Championship and National Leagues Matt Price, to increase sports engagement within primary and secondary schools.

Carmen Watson, chair and managing director of Pertemps, said: “We must ensure that local people have the skills they need to be well-placed to tackle the challenges of the future. Apprenticeships are a great way in giving young people their first step into employment. They are a great way of promoting social mobility and helping those furthest from the job market into work.”
