Brighton businesses sign up for apprentices
3:10pm Wednesday 13th March 2013 in News
Business leaders are being urged to take on more apprentices.
Staff at Terre a Terre restaurant in East Street, Brighton, yesterday (March 12) hosted guest from City College Brighton and Hove, National Apprenticeship Services, Martin Searle Solicitors, Woolley Bevis Diplock and other businesses in the city.
The event was held to encourage employers to respond to the “25 in 5” campaign launched by City College Brighton and Hove in association with The Argus.
Donna Keenan, director of City College’s business skills department in Pelham Street, said: “I’m consistently hearing from the employers that apprenticeships are delivering a significant return on their investment.
“Apprenticeships reduce skills shortages, minimise staff turnover and increase productivity so the business case is clearly very persuasive.”
