News: Brinsworth Training see a rise in apprenticeship vacancies


South Yorkshire's leading engineering and manufacturing training provider, Brinsworth Training in Rotherham, has seen a 300% increase in the number of apprenticeship vacancies.

The Templeborough company has seen over 100 apprenticeship vacancies placed over the last eight months, a 300% increase on 2009/10 figures. A sign that companies are starting to see the value and importance of recruiting young learners into their business.

Brinsworth Training helped to deliver the "New Era" programme, which has been pioneered by Rotherham-based Newburgh Engineering and Sheffield-based Air Accessories, and is designed to create a highly skilled breed of young engineers. They have also supported the very first female engineering apprentice at Sheffield specialist steel manufacturer, Firth Rixson. Amy Pryce recently met Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg on a visit of the Meadowhall works.

Paul Reeves, Business Development Director at Brinsworth Training said: "We are delighted to see such a marked increase in companies giving young people an opportunity to begin their careers in the engineering industry working through our apprenticeship programme.

"It's very important that the engineering industry gets behind apprenticeships more so now than ever before as it needs capable young minds which can be developed into tomorrow's business leaders."

National Apprenticeship Week takes place from the February 7 - 11 2011 and Brinsworth Training will be holding an open day for employers on February 11 in association with the National Apprenticeship Service, SEMTA, and QED Consulting. Attendees will hear firsthand the support that is available to recruit their future workforce.
