Employers to benefit from apprentice charter
PUBLISHED: 15:00 13 June 2018
An apprentice charter signed by North Somerset Council and UNISON will benefit employers across the region.
The agreement between North Somerset Council and the trade union group will ensure apprenticeships deliver positive outcomes.
Last year, more than 100 apprentices attended training events through the council’s joint apprenticeship forum.
UNISON is one of country’s largest trade unions, representing more than 1.3 million people across the UK’s public services.
The council’s head of performance improvement, Paul Morris, said: “We are pleased to be able to provide opportunities for apprentices.
“Our apprenticeship programmes are hugely successful and allow us to grow our own talent, including in hard-to-fill roles such as engineering and social care.
“Apprenticeships bring skills designed around business needs and help to ensure a skilled workforce.”
