400 RBS apprentices gain training provider

BPP Professional Apprenticeships will be the main training provider for 400 new Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) apprentices. The recruits will work in personal and business banking, commercial and private banking or its human resources sector.

School and college leavers will have the chance to work for one of the biggest banks in the UK whilst studying with BPP for professionally-recognised qualifications within the industry.

The new apprenticeship scheme allows RBS to explore a new avenue in which to attract the very best young talent to the bank.

Apprentices will work right across the business, all over the UK, as they undertake a one or two-year apprenticeship which will lead to a full time, permanent job at RBS.

They will have the chance to learn technical expertise and customer focus skills in a number of departments, including Personal and Business Banking, Commercial and Private Banking, Human Resources and Services divisions.

James Hammill, Director of BPP Professional Apprenticeships is delighted with the announcement:

‘‘It is fantastic to be able to help RBS develop the next generation of their workforce.’’

‘‘We share the same common values as RBS because we’re also keen to invest in future talent across the UK and recognise the value apprenticeships can bring to organisations. We’re delighted to be able to help so many school-leavers have such brilliant opportunities with a company like RBS.’’
