A training specialist has seen a rise in the number of people starting apprenticeships in Nottingham over the last year.
Client Positive Outcomes, which is based in South Normanton, more than doubled the number of people it signed up for Government-funded training in 2011/12 compared to the previous year’s figures.
From August 2011 to July 2012 Positive Outcomes signed up 638 apprentices, a huge increase on the 249 who started apprenticeships between August 2010 and July 2011.
Chris Longmate, Managing Director, comments: “We think this is a really encouraging sign that people of all ages are keen to learn new skills and work towards nationally recognised qualifications through work-based training.”
Of the 638 apprentices signed up over the last year, 96 were aged 16 to 18, a figure Positive Outcomes is hoping to increase over the next year with its new Paid to Learn scheme.
Paid to Learn is a brand new website, created by Unsworth Sugden’s digital team, that provides a tailored service to 16 to 18-year-olds seeking apprenticeships around the country, allowing teenagers to find and apply for roles online, as well as access advice and support.
Since its launch in August, Paid to Learn has already generated 300 applications from eager apprentices around the country. We’re delighted with the success of the website so far, it’s a great example of how fresh design and tailored SEO and PPC can really drive results.
