Croydon College supporting businesses to access apprenticeships

Croydon College is providing help and advice for businesses to enable them to employ apprentices and take advantage of the new government funding scheme.

In the announcement made by Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak last week, businesses were advised they could be given a £2,000 grant for employing an apprentice, ensuring people who are under 25 are able to get the training that they need to move into employment.

Anyone aged 16 and above can apply for an apprenticeship with the option for employers to also use the scheme to upskill and retrain current staff where needed to meet new business demands.

Croydon College has been running apprenticeships for many years and recently held virtual workshops with some of their business partners including Pension Protection Fund, Clarion Housing, Govia Thameslink, Croydon Council, Legacy Youth Zone and Edition Hotels, giving potential students the opportunity to find out more about what they can achieve with apprenticeship training.

Apprenticeships are available for any business of any size and the College has a dedicated apprenticeships team with a member of staff who will be able to support employers through every aspect of the apprenticeship including: the recruitment process, training required and also how to access the relevant funding available.

There are a range of courses Croydon College already runs which include accountancy, construction, hospitality, cyber security, Digital & IT, events, HR, teaching, marketing and engineering. To find out the full list of courses visit the website
