Building a skilled workforce, fit for the future, is crucial to employers in The Marches. The Marches LEP and Marches Growth Hub commissioned a short film to mark National Apprenticeship Week, aimed at encouraging employers to consider apprenticeship schemes.
Encouraging Apprenticeships hears from Keiran Ross, Alex Hall, and Ali Kerr – who all have something in common. They were all convinced that an apprenticeship was the right way to progress their career.
But why have their respective employers invested in apprenticeship schemes.
Although Grainger & Worrall, Salop Engineering and Fullwood are manufacturers, and the film certainly showcases the innovation in the sector, the skills issue is one which affects a growing number of industries in the Marches, and across the UK.
So have a look to see what the companies, and their apprentices, had to say. And don’t forget, employers can access our new skills search to find apprenticeship schemes and training courses which can help them develop their workforce.
We’d like to thank the companies and their apprenticeship for their support in the making of the film which can be seen on the Marches Growth Hub YouTube channel
