Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships play a vital role in growing Staffordshire’s economy and from 1 February 2019, provision of apprenticeship training will be via Nottingham City Council’s Directory of Approved Apprenticeship Training Providers (DAAP). 

Providers have to apply and be accepted before they get on the list to register, all the information can be found on the DAAP website.

Further details can be obtained from Chris Bamsey, Skills and Further Learning Manager at Staffordshire County Council, email: chris.bamsey@staffordshire.gov.uk or Tel: 01785 278659.

Public Sector Apprenticeships Target

The public sector apprenticeships target was introduced by government in April 2017 and sets a target for any public-sector employer in England with at least 250 employees to employ an average of 2.3% of their staff headcount as new apprentice starts between 1 April 2017 and March 2021.

Staffordshire County Council fully supports the Government’s apprenticeships reform agenda and the introduction of the public sector target, the transparency it provides and how this will encourage employers to act sooner to help reposition apprenticeships as the primary solution to technical and vocational skills development.

As a public sector body in scope we must report annually on our progress towards meeting the target and publish our ‘Data Publication’;
