Fusion21/CITB Merseyside & Cheshire Shared Apprentice Scheme

  1. 1. Shared Apprenticeship Scheme With a CITB Shared Apprentice, help is always at hand 0000696_CITB_Shared-APPS-EMPLOYER-MERSEY_AW.indd 1 02/07/2013 12:52
  2. 2. The Shared Apprenticeship Scheme gives you the support you need, when you need it The Shared Apprenticeship Scheme is an innovative collaboration between CITB and regional partners. It has been established in response to industry demand, as a way of providing construction contractors with an opportunity to meet local training obligations, and to maximise additional training opportunities for apprentices. • Do you have a training opportunity in an area that you don’t traditionally work in? • Have you identified a training opportunity within your company for an apprentice, but can’t commit to the long-term employment of that apprentice? • Are you committed to giving apprentices an opportunity to learn and progress? Then the Shared Apprenticeship Scheme could be for you. Partnering with the local Community: The Shared Apprenticeship Scheme, Building Skills for the Future (BSFF), has been established in partnership with Fusion21 to cover Merseyside and Cheshire. Gerard McEvoy, Director of Penny Lane Builders Ltd explains why they signed up to the scheme. “We got involved in the shared apprenticeship programme because of its flexibility. If we get a busy period we can take a trainee on, but we aren’t financially committed for the normal length of an apprenticeship which is about three years. This lack of risk means we’re more likely to employ more apprentices in the future.” “The scheme works for us as Building Skills do an assessment of trainees before they start. They’re given a full induction and an apprenticeship tool kit which prepares them and makes sure they have the right attitude. This also frees up our time. We get invoiced for each apprentice rather than having to pay them through our payroll so we have less administration.” Gerard explains that the scheme makes good business sense but it also enables them to give something back to the community. “We’re giving people a chance to get a position in the building industry when they might have otherwise struggled to find work.” 0000696_CITB_Shared-APPS-EMPLOYER-MERSEY_AW.indd 2 02/07/2013 12:52
  3. 3. Benefits of the Shared Apprenticeship Scheme • The Shared Apprenticeship Scheme gives you the opportunity to take on an apprentice, even if you can’t commit to the full two or three year duration. • Because the apprentice is employed by the Shared Apprenticeship Scheme, the employment responsibilities will be taken care of and you will only be re-charged for the time the apprentice is with you. • The flexible nature of this scheme can provide your business with the chance to secure new contracts and at the same time provide an opportunity for an apprentice. • Your business will benefit from an injection of energy from talented young people when your workload peaks. • All Shared Apprentices get the best training the industry can offer – with CITB. • We will provide trainees with a strong desire to succeed, and who will have already successfully passed our selection procedures. • Our focused selection process gives you the opportunity to select the correct person for your company. • Your business will benefit from the significant saving of the costs normally associated with recruitment. • Your apprentice will be fully supported by CITB representatives, who are committed to helping them complete their qualifications and become successful tradespeople. • At the end of the scheme you have the option to take over the apprentice’s employment – adding a fully-trained member to your workforce. Why construction is a ladder to success “A CITB Shared Apprentice allows construction contractors to meet any local training obligations required as part of contract procurement requirements.” – Ofsted 0000696_CITB_Shared-APPS-EMPLOYER-MERSEY_AW.indd 3 02/07/2013 12:52
