Business Apprenticeship Schemes for Young People
The seminar that was hosted by EHDC on June 26th proved very informative and raised several issues.
Unfortunately the event was not well attended but those present found the presentations by AMK, PETA and Connexions interesting.
It was felt by those attending this meeting that a similar event for really small businesses would be helpful. Smaller businesses need some guidance on which agencies can help them with information on funding and training when they are only able to think of taking on one trainee. There is a need to help our smaller employers find their way around the system and we hope to address this problem in the autumn with the help of the newly established business group.
