Up to 100 apprenticeships to be created in Keighley
Up to 100 apprentices could be taken on by Keighley firms as part of a push to get teenagers into jobs.
A training organisation is seeking dozens of companies across several types of business willing to take on young people.
Up to £15,000 of Government money is available for each apprentice along with extra funding for their training courses.
The recruitment drive, entitled 100-1, is being spearheaded by training association and charity Appris Management and Keighley training company EMD.
Dean Coleman-Walker, Appris’s business development adviser, said they wanted to find at least 50 apprentices. Mr Coleman-Walker said: “Many businesses are not aware that there is significant funding allowances for apprentices, and we believe that employers and young people in the area will seriously benefit from these schemes.”
