apprenticeship campaign

100 days reached: Our 100 campaign became more than 500!

Somerset's campaign to recruit 100 new apprentices in 100 days has reached its conclusion.  The Campaign, which saw Somerset College joining forces with the National Apprenticeship Service, four other colleges, private training providers and  local businesses, finished on Thursday 21st April, having created places for 515 new apprentices.

"It's a wonderful result that will greatly benefit both apprentices and employers," said Sue Parker, Director of Enterprise and External Relations at Somerset College in Taunton, which is helping to lead the Campaign.

"We have a number of exciting new apprenticeships at the College and are working closely with employers to create more.  There is a real hunger for apprenticeships now and that's what we and our partners will provide," she said.

Somerset College offers a wide range of apprenticeships from IT and Health and Social Care to Electrical Installation and Automotive Engineering.
