Dear All,    As you will know that I recently voiced my concerns over the unemployment in the area and that I was especially concerned about the situation with our local youth with 205 being on the job seekers list for the Liskeard Looe area.    To this end I am working on something for our local area to promote Apprenticeships and the new government money that is available in this area.    Whilst waiting for a local meeting to be set up and getting the town council buy in for the idea and speaking to those involved you will see that an event is already planned for the Cornwall wide area and a poster is attached.   It would be good for this to get to anyone in our area that wants to be involved in giving our youth a chance.  I will still look to have a local event and would ask local business to give us ideas of what they are looking for or what there plans are so we can prepare for the meeting that will help them.  Please let me know your thoughts on this via the links below

Thank you for your help

Apprentice winner Lee McQueen has emerged from the experience as a grounded and experienced businessman who is now focusing on training raw sales talent. With two successful years with Lord Alan Sugar under his belt, the former IT recruiter has just left the Amshold organisation and launched the Raw Talent Academy to prevent businesses wasting money on the wrong sort of recruits.

£1500 to say 'You're Hired'

Employers will be able to access a grant of £1500 to hire a new Apprentice.
The wage incentive ‘AGE 16 to 24’ is aimed at helping eligible employers to offer young people employment through the Apprenticeship programme, by providing wage grants to assist employers in recruiting their first apprentice.
The National Apprenticeship Service will provide up to 40,000 Apprenticeship grants to small-medium sized employers recruiting 16 to 24 year olds with a value of £1,500 to encourage new employers to take on new apprentices.
The £1,500 is in addition to the training costs of the Apprenticeship framework which are met in full for young people aged 16 to 18 and part funded for those 19+
