Apprenticeships are GREAT for business!
4th May 2012

The Source Skills Academy has expanded their range of Apprenticeship programmes and is now delivering Apprenticeships in Marketing!

South Yorkshire businesses can now recruit their own Marketing Apprentice for as little as £2.60 per hour, meaning developing their workforce doesn't have to break the bank. Businesses could also qualify for £1500 funding* towards the cost of hiring an Apprentice.

Head of Employer Engagement Mike Denby said: "The Marketing qualifications are an exciting new addition to The Source's offering, with opportunities for both young people looking for work and for businesses interested in expanding their workforce. We have a dedicated team of advisors who guide each vacancy from job description to completion of the qualification, meaning there is constant support available."

This exciting expansion has led to new partnerships for The Source and they are now working with Marketing specialists Scott Douglas Group to deliver strategic marketing expertise to their clients.

Mike continued: "Our partnership with Scott Douglas Group is an exciting opportunity that will benefit hundreds of businesses across the region to develop their Marketing division and we are looking forward to working with them more closely."

Jim Scott from Scott Douglas Group said: "I am delighted to be working with the team at The Source on this much needed new initiative. It will give young people a great start in their business career and will make all the difference to companies that need help to implement the marketing plans and programmes that we develop with them."

Businesses can also up skill their existing workforce with funded work based qualifications in sector specific areas.
