Employers based in Lancashire have the opportunity to bid for surplus funds and access high-quality training for their organisation.
Since April 2017, the County Council has been paying into the Apprenticeship Levy. This has provided an opportunity for the Council to upskill their existing staff and recruit new apprentices into their organisation.
County Councillor Geoff Driver CBE, leader of the county council, said: "Training helps us to develop our own workforce and recruit new talent into the organisation, with apprenticeships helping us to build the right skills in our workforce for our future needs. We want to support apprentices and we encourage organisations to apply."
This funding is available to organisations for the following sectors: health and social care, disadvantaged or vulnerable groups, the voluntary sector, the digital sector, engineering and construction or education or early years setting.
Information regarding the full list of apprenticeship qualifications and local providers are listed on the Institute for Apprenticeships & Technical Education website.
