Actions we take

Actions towards meeting the apprenticeship target in the future:

  • We aim to match a proportion of our apprenticeships to those children in our care and those leaving care.
  • We are running a traineeship program for September for eight young people to give them the chance to gain work experience and work towards achieving the Maths and English grades required to complete an apprenticeship.
  • We are supporting our Kickstart employees to apply for our current vacancies.
  • We have no upper age limit.
  • We work closely with senior management to promote higher level apprenticeships including degree level and above. 
  • We are working with maintained schools to offer apprenticeships and have candidates starting their level 3 Teaching Assistant Apprenticeships in September.
