Over 20,000 apprenticeships created by National Apprenticeship

Employers, large and small, have pledged more than 20,000 new apprenticeships as part of National Apprenticeship Week, which was held last week.

Some of the largest companies to have promised to provide opportunities for apprentices are Lloyds Banking Group, which has committed to hire 5,000 apprentices, Greene King and Whitbread have pledged 2,000 a piece and EE, Mitchells & Butlers and Starbucks each announcing 1,000 vacancies.

It’s not just big corporates that are showing their commitment to apprenticeships – 47% of the employers creating new apprenticeships are small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

Skills and enterprise minister Matthew Hancock MP says: “Apprenticeships are delivering for employers, young people, adults and the economy, and are increasing at a record rate.

“Nearly every employer that takes on an apprentice reports benefits to their business, including the ability to grow their own talents.”

Yesterday’s announcement follows new research revealing that nearly half (44%) of employers intend to take on one or more apprentice in the next five years
