Training provider welcomes news of ‘flexi-job’ apprenticeships and celebrates investment in wider training options
Commenting on the Chancellor’s announcement that a significant financial boost will be made to drive uptake of traineeships and apprenticeships in England, Joe Turner of Acacia Training, said:
“As a leading provider of workplace training across apprenticeships, traineeships and the Kickstart programme, we must welcome today’s news that an additional 40,000 traineeships will be created, and businesses will be further incentivised to take on apprentices. At a time when we must focus efforts on allowing the economy to recover, providing both the means for businesses to recruit and for young people and adults alike to gain valuable training and a route in to employment is a positive step in the right direction.
“It is, however, the announcement around new ‘flexi-job’ apprenticeships that is particularly exciting. The option for apprentices to work with a number of different employers across their chosen sector will open up training routes that have been previously harder to navigate due to the flexible working patterns that are commonplace in many sectors. We’re already actively engaged in conversations with specialist recruitment agencies to scope out how we can best partner to deliver this innovate new approach to workplace training and we’re keen to speak with other recruiters for whom this announcement has piqued their interest.”
