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
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.
Youth (18-24) Claimant Rate: the percentage of total claimants aged 18-24 is relatively high at 28.7% compared to 24.3% nationally, confirming the characteristic of the city having a large 18-24 year old population and a large proportion of 18-24 claimants.
This comparatively high proportion of youth claimants is reflected historically in the city.
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.
