Apprentice help at hand in Eden

First published in News

COUNTY councillors have earmarked funding for businesses in Eden to take on apprentices.

Cumbria County Council’s Local Committee for Eden agreed to boost youth employment prospects by making £10,000 available to small and medium-sized firms creating new apprenticeships.

The grants of up to £2,000 per apprenticeship – made up of £500 from the county council and £1,500 of Government funding – will cover a proportion of the apprentice’s first year wage.
