Surrey apprenticeship campaign beats second target

 

Raising the bar for apprenticeships

Raising the bar for apprenticeships

Surrey County Council’s apprenticeship target has been exceeded for the second time. The original goal of 200 apprenticeships was met four months early, and its new target of a further 65 positions was met in just three.

Referring to the latest apprenticeship campaign, Garath Symonds, Surrey County Council’s assistant director for young people, said: “Reaching this goal is great news. We were thrilled when our initial target of 200 apprenticeships was reached four months early, so we raised the bar.

“That target has now been passed too, and I’m sure many more employers will join us this year to get the skilled workforce they require to thrive, and provide young people with the leg-up they need to find work in these tough times.”
