North York Moors National Park team picked to spread the word about apprenticeships
10:38am Wednesday 23rd January 2013 in News
THE North York Moors National Park Authority is one of the voices behind a new, nationwide advertising campaign launched by the National Apprenticeship Service to encourage more employers to take apprentices.
The authority joins seven other employers from across England in the adverts which focus on the quality of apprenticeships and how they can help businesses to grow.
The campaign coincides with four vacancies for conservation apprentices based at the National Park headquarters in Helmsley. The jobs are aimed at school and college leavers and are for an initial period of 15 months with potential for an extension to 30 months.
The adverts highlight the importance of the £1,500 Apprenticeship Grant for Employers which is available to employers with fewer than 1,000 employees to help them take on an apprentice between the ages of 16-24.
The National Park Authority, which reached the regional final of the Government’s Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer contest last year, was selected to take part in the advertising campaign in recognition of its on-going commitment to helping young people to grow and develop through apprenticeships.
Broadcast during January and February, the adverts are estimated to reach 25 million people.
