Outstanding training allows Apprentices to earn and learn with Cornwall’s top employers

With more than 20 new Apprenticeship programmes being introduced in early May, Truro and Penwith College is giving Apprentices the opportunity to learn from Cornwall’s top employers whilst training at an outstanding provision.

The new Apprenticeships have been introduced as part of the government reforms to introduce Apprenticeships that are designed with employers to ensure Apprentices complete with the skills they are looking for.

Working with hundreds of Businesses across the county including the likes of Cornwall Council, St Austell Brewery, Eden Project and the Headland Hotel, the College runs over 40 Apprenticeship programmes in a range of sectors, allowing Apprentices to continuously put their knowledge into practice.

Not only can Apprenticeships be used to train new staff, but Apprenticeships enable employers to upskill their current workforce.

Adam Luck, Director of St Austell Brewery said: “As a company, we work hard to nurture and develop young local talent in all areas of our business and see Apprentices in particular as the bedrock of the company’s future success. Working with local education providers such as Truro and Penwith College enables us to tailor Apprentice opportunities to suit individual needs and help them to develop into our future chefs, engineers and business leaders.”

“We look forward to working even more closely with the College in the coming years to offer real job opportunities and careers for local youngsters within St Austell Brewery, helping us to continue to grow and prosper.”

Truro and Penwith College aim to focus on the quality of Apprenticeships, demonstrating that the priority must be delivering high standards of teaching, learning and assessment and responsiveness.
