Meanwhile, Market Drayton-based CE Projects Ltd, a specialist in the installation and maintenance of effluent treatment and diary vending equipment, is offering an Engineering Operative apprenticeship in conjunction with SBC Training.
Simon Cartwright, the sales director at CEL Group, said: “The apprenticeship scheme is a great opportunity. It provides a valuable insight into industry, enabling apprentices to earn whilst they learn."
Hospital becomes ambassador for Ladder for Shropshire campaign
The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital near Oswestry has joined the Ladder for Shropshire campaign as an ambassador to promote apprenticeships.
Health and social care, with almost 24,000 people, is the largest employment sector in the county and has been so important during the current Covid-19 crisis.
The trust has been offering apprenticeships for many years and endeavours to ensure that young people are continually part of its recruitment and development process.
Allen Edwards, learning and development officer for the trust, said it currently has 56 apprentices across a wide range of occupations, clinical, administrative, housekeeping, catering and maintenance, and a further six opportunities are about to be offered.
Ladder for Shropshire has new project lead
Amanda Carpenter has joined the Ladder for Shropshire as project lead and is already hitting the ground running.
“I have many years’ experience of supporting young people and working with employers to identify apprenticeship opportunities.
The Ladder for Shropshire is an exciting initiative to be part of, and the perfect opportunity for me to use my passion, experience and expertise to offer impartial advice to employers on apprenticeships, traineeships and kickstart including all of the incentives that are on offer.
My goal is to encourage as many employers as possible to create opportunities to support the growing number of the young unemployed in Shropshire after the devastation of the pandemic. Youth unemployment has doubled since the beginning of the year and the number of apprenticeships on offer is almost 50 per cent lower than this time last year, so the more businesses that we can engage with the more of an impact we can make for young people and for the local economy."
