Wakefield Council, in partnership with Leeds City Region Local Enterprise Partnership, the National Apprenticeship Service and a range of providers including Wakefield College and are looking to increase the number of Apprenticeships in Wakefield and would like to invite you to be a part of it.

Starting someone on an Apprenticeship or supporting your current workforce via Apprenticeships is easier than you think. A dedicated employer services team and local training provider will support you at every stage to make sure the process is simple and easy to get started and to support you and the apprentice through their training and work. If you are thinking of recruiting or up-skilling your workforce, why not consider offering an Apprenticeship.

Currently there are grants available to support companies with 1,000 or less employees who are either taking on their first Apprentice or haven't taken on a new Apprentice for over 12 months.

To find out more about Apprenticeships and what they can offer your business visit the national Apprenticeship website on or contact Louise Childs, Project Co-ordinator, Wakefield Apprenticeship Hub, either on 01924 302703 or via email at

We look forward to hearing from you!
