If you are a business and potentially thinking about taking on an apprentice, funding of up to £5,000 is available in most areas of the county to support the cost of recruiting and retaining an apprentice.

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.

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