Skills for Business Apprenticeship Fund – Salford City Council
Posted on 2nd May, 2019
The Salford Skills Business Apprenticeship Fund is believed to be the first Public/Private/Third Sector partnership of its kind which gifts on a city-wide basis.
This trailblazing Fund is investing in apprenticeship training within SMEs to help create more quality and sustainable apprenticeship roles for Salford residents. The fund also helps existing employers close skill gaps in key sectors such as health and social care, education, digital, manufacturing and constructions, hospitality, business and professional services.
Salford City Council and its partners: Apprenticeships at Salford City College, University of Salford, Bupa, Salix Homes, Kingsland Drinks, Morson Group, Salford Clinical Commissioning Group and Seddon will be gifting up to £323,500 of apprenticeship training funding to small and medium sized organisations. The partnership has also secured a further £114,000 Greater Manchester Combined Authority funding to support a proportion of apprentices’ salary costs.
