County Hall backs more apprenticeships

First published in

ESSEX County Council is backing plans to create more apprenticeships.

The Essex apprentice programme provides funding to businesses as an incentive to employ apprentices aged 16 to 24 in a variety of sectors.

Deputy leader Kevin Bentley said: “We are committed to helping young people in Essex achieve their full potential through learning as well as supporting employers to generate wealth, jobs and opportunity.

“Apprentices have a hugely positive impact on business and the local economy. I would encourage anyone thinking about taking on an apprentice to contact us and take the leap.”
