Investing in Apprenticeships
UK Credit Limited, a local finance provider is the latest business to take advantage of Poultec Training Limited’s Apprentice Finder Service. The Norwich based business has two positions that they would like to fill with Apprentices– Loans Support Administrator and Customer Account Manager. As part of the service offered by Poultec Training, a national training provider based near Dereham, vacancies are posted on their own website, the National Apprenticeship Service’s website and promoted to those looking for work. Staff at Poultec are able to support you through the recruitment process. Once the vacancy is filled, Poultec Training will be responsible for the provision of training for the successful applicants. Poultec’s Business Programme Manager, Michelle Bugg said ‘We are able to support traditional recruitment methods to help a business fill vacancies. Once in place, we come to site and provide training relevant to the job role’.
The training programme delivered is developed in consultation with the employer to ensure that it is relevant to the needs of the business. An Apprenticeship lasts between 12 and 18 months, with the Apprentice being employed by the business and receiving training from Poultec. Funding is provided via the Skills Funding Agency to pay for the training. On completion of the Apprenticeship the individual has a national recognised qualification as well as practical work-based skills.
UK Credit Limited’s Chairman Andrew Turner said ‘Our Company is keen to play an active role in providing employment opportunities for local, young people. We see these as the future of our business’.
Poultec have been promoting their Apprenticeship provision this week at the Forum in Norwich, as part of National Apprenticeship Week. Staff have braved the cold weather to provide information about apprenticeships to prospective Apprentices and businesses. In addition to this, staff will be also taking to the road and be located in market towns throughout Norfolk in the coming weeks. Again their staff will be on-hand, from 10am till 4pm to provide information or even enrol you onto an Apprenticeship at the following locations: 15th & 18th April Fakenham and 16th & 19th April Cromer – look out for the black bus!
