Apprenticeships are a valuable part of the learning and development package. Available to all staff regardless of age and length of service. They also ensure that your team has the practical skills and qualifications it needs now, and in the future.
The mixture of on and off job learning ensures that those employees on an apprenticeship learn the skills that work best for our business. Warwickshire County Council is one of over 130,000 companies who offer apprentice places because we all understand the benefits that apprentices bring to our businesses:
- Increased productivity
- Improved competitiveness
- A committed and competent work-force and
- Enabling young/inexperienced people to start their careers in a constructive and positive environment.
Warwickshire County Council have created an apprenticeship policy for Warwickshire and work with the National Apprenticeship Service to grow apprenticeships both within the Council and within companies throughout the sub region. The policy clearly sets out our intentions around apprenticeships and shows the value we place in them.
