Leading recruitment agency Gi Group UK and award-winning training provider DBC Training are expanding their partnership, which is offering funding for apprenticeship training programmes for business across the Midlands.
The Gi Group apprenticeship levy transfer scheme is available to local businesses to help fund investment in professional learning and development programmes for new and existing employees to start or develop their career by developing new skills.
The partnership first launched in December 2019 and has so far supported 44 businesses to recruit and train 71 apprentices. The increased funding commitment from Gi Group represents a total skills investment of £0.5m in Midlands-based businesses, residents and communities.
Gi Group’s Managing Director UK Operations, Paul Smith said: “Gi Group is a socially responsible business and the apprenticeship levy transfer scheme is a key part of our Corporate Social Responsibility framework. Working in partnership with DBC Training, we are proud to sponsor businesses to access and fund apprenticeships, and to help them develop and grow by creating skilled and productive workforces.”
DBC Training’s Managing Director, Kerry Bentley said: “We are delighted to build on our long standing partnership with Gi Group and extend funding to more SMEs across our region to recruit and train apprentices, particularly at this challenging time for many small businesses. We are passionate about apprenticeships and access to fully-funded apprenticeships will help unlock the potential of the region’s businesses and residents”
