A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to listen to a very interesting presentation by Lisa Beddington,  Senior Business Development Coordinator at West Suffolk College:

DID YOU KNOW: 15 years ago no one had sent a text message! 7 years ago no one had viewed YouTube! 20 months ago no one had touched an iPad! The top ten in demand jobs of 2010 did not even exist in 2004 The future will involve job opportunities that currently do not exist, using technologies not yet invented, solving problems we are not yet aware of…..


n the year 2011/12 over half a million people started an Apprenticeship as at 31 January 2013

DID YOU KNOW THAT THERE IS A... Apprenticeship Grant for Employers (AGE 16 - 24) • AGE 16 to 24 is aimed at supporting businesses to grow by employing young people through the Apprenticeship programme. 

The National Apprenticeship Service will provide Apprenticeship grants to employers with up to 1000 employees recruiting 16 to 24 year olds with a value of £1,500, to encourage employers to develop their business and take on new apprentices. Eligible employers are those who have never employed an apprentice before or who have not recruited one in the last 12 months.
