Employers are increasingly waking up to the benefits that apprentices bring to their businesses and the economy. Apprentices enable businesses to develop a skilled workforce, support succession planning, and contribute to productivity.
Leicester College is a leading light in the training provision for Leicester and Leicestershire apprentices, working with hundreds of local employers and thousands of apprentices on an annual basis. With the introduction of the new apprenticeship levy, the College is also pleased to launch a Levy Co-ordination Solution Service, allowing us to work closely with employers to support them though the changes and get the best possible value from their investment in apprenticeships.
It is our pleasure to sponsor an award that specifically celebrates the contribution and value of apprentices in the workplace, and recognises how vital the continued support of local businesses is to the apprenticeships scheme.
