Apprentices highlighted as solution to sharp rise in unemployment

With the Commission for the New Economy announcing July’s rise in unemployment a result of school and college leavers; it seems a solution is needed promptly in order to recapture a sustained balance in the economy.

Bolton based training provider, Alliance Learning are urging employers, who feel they don’t have the financial capacity to take on an experienced staff member, to consider an apprentice. 

An Apprenticeship is a work based learning programme, through this programme you can train both your existing staff and any new employees that you are thinking of recruiting. All apprentices follow a specialised ‘Apprenticeship Framework’.

Apprentices learn whilst they work, giving them practical, up-to-date knowledge needed for specific industry sectors – keeping employers abreast of new practices and technologies.

Understanding that employers need to maintain and build upon their company’s skill set, Alliance Learning are able to offer the most comprehensive range of courses, designed by employers for employers.

Alliance Learning offers Apprenticeship training throughout Greater Manchester with a particular focus in the locality of their three training centres across Bolton, Radcliffe & Leigh. Apprenticeships are offered in; Business Administration, ITQ, Customer Service, Children’s Care Learning & Development, Health & Social Care, Electrical Engineering, Fabrication & Welding, Mechanical Engineering, Warehouse & Storage and Retail.

Head of Recruitment at Alliance Learning, Maureen Culshaw, commented:

“Many employers are unaware of the value an apprentice can add to their workforce and so we are hoping by highlighting the benefits of work based apprenticeships we can get more young learners into employment and ease some financial strain for local businesses.

“Alliance Learning will recruit an apprentice or support a company’s existing staff, plan and design training programmes, monitor progress and ensure the training supports the environment of the workplace.”
