Ipswich: 100... and not out for apprentices

FOUR extra apprenticeships are being created today – taking us above and beyond our target of 100.

The 100 in 100 campaign has now offically drawn to a close but still companies are coming forward to offer fresh hope to unemployed youngsters.

NHS Suffolk is the latest employer to lend their support. They will be taking on four administrative assi- stants working within various teams covering quality, human resources and corporate services.

A spokesman for the health trust said: “The apprenticeship scheme is an important part of the planning for the future needs of health care in Suffolk. It enables us to develop a workforce that is highly skilled and trained to deal with health care issues. It is also a valuable opportunity for young people to get a great start to their career.”

Nigel Pickover, editor of The Evening Star, was delighted to hear the latest news and offered his thanks to everyone who has helped us reach, and surpass, our goal.

Meanwhile, Teresa Logan, of the National Appren- ticeship Service, added: “I am absolutely delighted that we’ve over achi- eved our target of securing 100 appre- nticeship opportunities in 100 days. Our job doesn’t stop here however - it is vital that we all continue to raise awareness of apprenticeships and the business benefits they bring to an organisation.”
