Lloyds Banking Group has expanded its National Apprenticeship Programme to include a total of 1,000 positions 08/03/2013
The programme has been a huge success, overseeing 400 apprentices since October 2012. The organisation has also introduced higher apprenticeships, which are equal to the qualifications gained on the first rungs of the higher education ladder.
Standard apprenticeships are designed for 16 to 24-year-olds who haven't entered higher education, with new starters trained in nationally recognised qualifications.
The successful applicants will have the chance to 'earn while you learn', receiving full pay and benefits plus a permanent role in the company.
Human resources director for Lloyds Banking Group, Kate Guthrie, stated, 'We are incredibly excited to be in a position to further invest in the Apprenticeship Programme. Building people's skills and aspirations can make a real impact in tackling youth employment by providing many young people with their vital first career opportunity.
'As one of the biggest employers in the UK our goal is to create a new generation of skilled worker to help Britain prosper.'
This comes after the National Audit Office revealed every £1 of public investment in apprenticeships delivers a return of £18 to the wider economy.
