Launch Of 'Yes To Apprenticeships'

The Launch of ‘Yes to Apprenticeships’

By Heather Green, Director of Apprenticeships, Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce

I am really excited about today’s launch of the ‘Yes to Apprenticeship’ campaign. Our mission is to get even more Greater Manchester employers understanding the business benefits of apprenticeship recruitment and for them to join us in saying ‘Yes to Apprenticeships’ by pledging a vacancy in their company for one of this summer’s school or college leavers.

We are generating a record level of interest from employers and we already have well over 100 companies which have joined the campaign to ensure that they don’t miss out in securing the best young talent that Greater Manchester has to offer....but we are not stopping there as we need even more.

This year more school and college leavers than ever before are choosing to do an Apprenticeship in their chosen field. We already have over 2,000 pre-assessed and enthusiastic candidates on our books who want to start working, gain real skills and experience as well as work towards a nationally recognised qualification but we need the support of GM employers to make this happen.

Today’s school and college leavers are the future stars of tomorrow, potential business leaders for Greater Manchester and they need their time to shine. We’re excited and proud that ‘Yes to Apprenticeships’ will give them this.
