New campaign aims to encourage SMEs to discover the value of apprenticeships

A campaign urging SMEs to train new apprentice talent and fill skills shortages across South Yorkshire has got under way this week.

National Apprenticeship Week, running until Friday, showcases how apprenticeships work for employers, learners, communities and the economy.

The newly-established South Yorkshire Apprenticeship Hub is backing the national campaign.

During the week, it will be highlighting the support available to SMEs so they can address skill shortages and hard-to-fill vacancies.

The hub provides impartial guidance and connects employers with the best training provider for their needs.

Keith Richardson, Manager, South Yorkshire Apprenticeship Hub, said: SME employers are the lifeblood of our economy. The South Yorkshire Apprenticeship Hub provides free impartial advice that helps SMEs to develop their workforce and get the right skills for growth.”

SMEs in Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield are invited to visit the South Yorkshire Apprenticeship Hub for more details and book an online consultation. Based on Broad Street West, Sheffield, the hub is funded by the South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority (SYMCA) and the South Yorkshire Colleges Partnership.
