Diary of a Sutton Councillor

Apprentices are good for business

Suttonapprentices Council is promoting apprenticeships as good value for local businesses and offering great opportunities for young people.

Last year it launched the Sutton Apprenticeship Hub which brings together information, apprenticeship opportunities and people seeking apprenticeships all in the one place.
The site is currently listing 270 vacancies in the local area and highlighting a number of success stories to inspire.

And leading by example the council has a great track record of taking on apprentices, employing 12 at present, with another 2 just being recruited.

We are also extremely proud of the recent success of one of our apprentices working in the Opportunity Sutton Team, who won the London Borough Councils’ Apprentice of the Year Award seeing off stiff competition from across London.

Delivering an Apprenticeship Hub was in the Sutton Lib Dem 2014 manifesto so we are delighted to see it launched and bringing businesses and job seekers together to improve local skills.
