College leads the way for apprenticeships

North Lindsey College has achieved its impressive target of recruiting 100 apprentices in 100 days for the third year running.

The college set itself an ambitious target of securing apprenticeships for 100 students in 100 days and actually secured 113 new apprentices with local employers.

North Lindsey College is the largest provider of apprenticeships in North Lincolnshire with over 860 across different sectors and job roles.

From using apprenticeships to bring in new staff to using apprenticeships to develop existing staff, employers use apprenticeships to support skills development and to have a real impact within a business.

Jill Cooper, business development directorat the college, said: “We are delighted to have surpassed the target figure we set again this year.

"Employers and young people continue to consider apprenticeships as a fantastic opportunity.

“For employers they support them in developing their own talent base, providing a source of new skills for the future.

“For young people they are usually that first step into employment with the benefit of achieving work-based qualifications so valuable today in the job market.”
