Grow Somerset Talent
Previous campaigns, all lasting 100 days, have focused on securing apprentices into new employment opportunities. All campaigns have exceeded set targets and expectations.
In brief - the new campaign aims to promote and maximise the ‘AGE' (Apprenticeship Grant for Employers). NAS will provide eligible employers, who have less then 1000 employees, is new to Apprenticeships or hasn't recruited an apprentice or existing employee onto an Apprenticeship in the last 12 months, a grant of £1500. Employers can be paid ten grants in total for the lifetime of the initiative.
