Welcome to 1000 Club
The 1000 Club is currently finalising its targets for this new financial year and we would be grateful if all members could spare a couple of minutes to confirm numbers of places created in the last year - to make it easy, I have created an electronic survey which you can access by clicking below. Very many thanks for your help with this.
New Skills Passport will help open up the world of work
A group of Plymouth students from several different city schools have reached the halfway point in the trial of a brand new employability passport to help them with their future employment.
The passport, developed by schools working in partnership with Plymouth City Council, is also being embraced by businesses from the Building Plymouth initiative that recognise its value to provide better opportunities to create smooth transitions into future employment.
The 1000 Club is a member of a newly formed Plymouth Apprenticeship Manager Network that has been established to promote Apprenticeships across the City; share knowledge and good practice; work with the National Apprenticeship Service and other key strategic bodies to inform and influence policy; promote the employability of apprentices and their links with the world of work.
Group member Plymouth Citizens Advice Bureau recently organised an Apprentice Activity Day on behalf of the Group.
The importance of supporting young people
Experience of the world of work is key to developing well rounded young people that are ready to become effective employees and meet the expectations of employers. This will ensure they have the characteristics and skills that employers need and therefore able to support businesses in their growth and the growth of the local economy.
Support for your business
The partners offer a range of support, and are partnering to share expertise and experience to ensure that businesses receive the best service and students get the best support. We are therefore very keen to receive feedback of what works well and not so well to enable us to continue to evolve the service.
For an informal discussion about the various options available and support that can be provided please contact Elaine Budd

Apprenticeship Campaign Launched
A new campaign is being launched in Plymouth to encourage more young people to take up the hundreds of local apprenticeships that are still available.
The city has a reputation for delivering exceptional apprenticeships but despite there being more than 6,000 apprentices in Plymouth, there are still around 300 vacancies.
