Access government support to hire an apprentice

Jack Semple, Secretary of EAMA, reminds us that EAMA (of which MTA is a member) are supporting a government campaign aimed at employers in manufacturing and advanced engineering, that promotes apprenticeships.  

86% of employers said apprenticeships helped them develop skills relevant to their organisation.   To make the process of hiring an apprentice easier, you can search for apprenticeship training using the government’s online service, and access government funding to cover training and assessment costs.

Once you have chosen the right apprenticeship training for your business, you will need to create an apprenticeship service account, where you can manage apprenticeship funding, advertise vacancies and more.
