Businesses offered cash incentives and CONTRACTS

Surrey County Council has launched a scheme, where businesses will be offered a cash incentive to hire 200 apprentices

Leader David Hodge has announce the £300,000 scheme that will see employers handed £1,500 for every teenage apprentice taken on.


Surrey has targeted creating 200 apprenticeships for under-19s as part of its pledge to promote economic growth. That commitment has already seen county businesses win more than £740 million of 2012 Games related contracts and a promise for 60% of the council’s spending on goods and services to go to local firms.


Go on John!!

Further Education, Skills and Lifelong Learning Minister Mr Hayes said:

“Apprenticeships have never been more vital. They are pivotal to our skills system and an essential part of our strategy for economic growth.“I warmly welcome the initiative that Surrey County Council is taking to boost the growth of apprenticeships in Surrey.
