Weston College to Enrol 300 Apprentices in 50 Days

The Bristol and Bath Apprenticeship Provider of the Year, Weston College has announced that they are planning to enrol 300 apprentices across the South West in just 50 days.

The College who are well known for their ambitious apprenticeship campaigns, support over 2,000 employers each year and are driving the apprenticeship agenda in the region.

It has been well reported that the UK is experiencing the ‘Great Resignation’, with many employers looking into ways to engage their staff through staff development. Apprenticeships can offer a way of upskilling existing staff, as well as bringing in new recruits and creating an energetic and skilled future workforce.

The campaign itself is starting on 26th September 2022 and will run until 25th November 2022. Throughout the campaign the College will be sharing apprenticeship success stories, as well as updating the progress of the campaign on social media, highlighting which employers are taking on apprentices and/or upskilling their existing staff.

Sir Paul Phillips, Principal and Chief Executive of the Weston College Group, said: “We are passionate about creating brighter futures, and are really excited to be launching this campaign, continuing to buck the apprenticeship trend.

“We all know how difficult it can be to recruit, but with apprenticeships you can bring in a brand-new generation of employees to your organisation, or you can upskill your existing staff through bespoke initiatives.

“With the rising cost of living, we are seeing that individuals want to broaden their horizons to increase their earning capacity. Apprenticeships provide people the opportunity to earn while they learn and can be a fantastic way of keeping existing staff that want to progress.

“At Weston College we offer over 50 different apprenticeship standards, ranging from Level 2 to degree-level, and we would be delighted to work with anyone that needs support.”
