Tresham Welcomes Local Business Leaders to Highlight Apprenticeships


Corby Business Group

Tresham’s Principal, Stuart Wesselby, and Managing Director, Rachel Kay, welcomed local business leaders from the Corby Business Group on Wednesday 23rd January 2013 and highlighted the college’s commitment to improve the skills level of the local community and how offering apprenticeships can provide an alternative for many young people and adults to gain the skills they require for full time work.

Stuart Wesselby highlighted Tresham’s recently launched ‘Pledge’ to give individuals from all backgrounds the same opportunities to access valid work experience, and a vocational qualification to help begin their careers through studying apprenticeships.

The Tresham Pledge is committed to making it easier for companies, both large and small, to accommodate apprentices, harness and hone local talent and gain access to government funding. Led by Evolve Business Training, Tresham’s Pledge is open to any business in Northamptonshire wishing to develop its employees with work-based qualifications, or recruit new staff to receive industry-relevant, tailored training whilst they work.

The courses on offer via the Tresham Pledge will range from Construction to Creative Arts & Media, and anybody can become an apprentice regardless of age or previous work experience, from school-leavers to adults already engaged in full-time employment.

Where a company is not yet engaged in training, Evolve will provide comprehensive support and expert guidance, by undertaking a detailed organisational needs analysis, writing up a full training proposal and identifying potential NEETS and young learners who could enrol on an apprenticeship with them.

Additionally, Evolve Business Training will offer companies the opportunity to take on a work placement, giving them the scope to trial new trainees and benefit from the College’s entry apprenticeships model in the future.
