TRAINING providers can often be a vital link for young people looking for local employers to give them a chance in the working world.
And three weeks into the launch of our 100 Apprentices Campaign, Mansfield-based firm Remit Training is getting behind our scheme and urging local companies to sign up as soon as possible.
Our campaign is aimed at bringing employers and training providers together to drive up the number of apprenticeships in our area and now is the chance for local employers to step forward and add their name to the growing list.
Remit Training, based at Acorn Business Park, works with employers, awarding bodies, Government organisations and schools and colleges in the district to provide training programmes.
These include automotive courses as well as food and hospitality training to clients like restaurants, hotels and healthcare organisations.
National sales manager Steve Holton says that Remit Training tries hard to help young people progress in life.
“We want to show what an apprentice programme is and our major aim is to get young people into the world of work,” he said.
“Developing partnerships in Mansfield and Ashfield can only be to the benefit of the economy.
“Our staff ensure that all learners on our training programmes receive the highest possible standard of support, training and education from recruitment through to successful completion.
“Apprentices are very good for UK plc and help the economy. And plenty of current employers who were apprentices once have worked their way up through an apprentice programme.
“There are some fantastic kids out there and we are making sure that people are given a platform to achieve their potential.”
Paul Bennett, telesales manager at Remit Training, has urged those interested in an apprenticeship to visit the company website and see the wide variety of training courses for people across the district.
“We have a range of specialisms and we want to get across what a wide range of courses we can provide,” said Paul.
“We appreciate that each learner is an individual with different learning abilities and career goals.
“Our promise in partnership with you is to create an environment which is secure, supportive and learner focused, and allows everyone to achieve success.”
Chad has teamed up with Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Chamber of Commerce (DNCC) and the National Apprenticeship Service (NAS) in the East Midlands to help create 100 new job roles for young people in our area.
