Apprenticeships in Hertfordshire
Hertfordshire LEP and the Lieutenancy are working to improve the number and quality of apprenticeship opportunities in Hertfordshire, and their take-up by local employers and residents.
An apprenticeship is a job with training. It allows the apprentice to earn a wage while learning specific skills and gaining recognised qualifications.
It requires the equivalent of one day per week in some form of training. Apprenticeships can be taken up at any age and not just by 16-25 year-olds. It is also possible for existing staff to take up an apprenticeship.
Businesses have been hit hard by the pandemic. Investing in skills now can help grow a business and ensure it is future-ready. There has never been a better time to hire an apprentice in Hertfordshire. That is why Hertfordshire LEP has launched ‘Hertfordshire Supports Apprenticeships’ to help:
- Deliver a resident workforce fit for the future.
- Raise the skills and productivity levels of those already in work.
- Showcase the resilience of apprentices and employers during COVID-19.
The Lieutenancy is intent on celebrating excellence in Apprenticeships and to support those companies and Apprentices who are leading the way in this regard. The following visits highlight the outstanding practice in some of Hertfordshire’s most innovative companies:
