    College urges businesses to build Northern Powerhouse and local economy with the help of Apprentice

    March 6th 2017

    Wigan & Leigh College is urging local business to invest in young people and adults as National Apprenticeship Week commences.

    As a new report highlights that the Northern Powerhouse will play a central role in delivering three million apprentices by 2020 and the Apprenticeship Levy is launched on 1st May, the College is encouraging businesses to recruit Apprentices to become a “vital part” of their workforce.

    The College provides young people and adults with the opportunity to establish careers in engineering, construction, social media, sports and accounting, plus many more careers, and is the largest Apprenticeship provider in the borough working with more than 1,000 local and national employers.

    Lorraine Groch, Vice Principal of Wigan & Leigh College, said, “Apprenticeships provide local and national businesses with a solution to fill emerging skills gaps and up skill existing employees within a wide variety of industries. The College already works with a significant number of employers from across the country, providing a first-class Apprenticeship Matching Service which ensures each business recruits the perfect Apprentice. We also support employers to identify their existing employees for Apprenticeship opportunities in order to help their organisations to achieve their objectives.”


    “Apprentices combine on the job training with vocational qualifications; this ensures a business is being provided with technically skilled, qualified and knowledgeable employees on completion of their programme. We know from extensive feedback and employer research that Apprentices enhance a workforce, filling skills gaps and providing a workforce for the future.”

    To Let Wigan is just one of many local employers embracing Apprentices into their workplace with the help of the College.

    Stephen Allison, Managing Director of To Let Wigan said, “Energy, enthusiasm and a willingness to learn count for a lot in any business and our recently recruited Apprentice, Bradley, has proved to be a valuable member of the team here at To Let Wigan. We value his interest, his hard work and of course his computing knowledge. I would recommend Apprenticeships to other businesses.”

    The College is providing free and impartial advice to local and national businesses on the recruitment of Apprentices.  To find out more, call 01942 761111 or visit www.wigan-leigh.ac.uk/apprenticeships
