News: Brinsworth Academy of Engineering joins forces with Stafforce


Leading engineering and manufacturing training provider, Brinsworth Academy of Engineering, has joined forces with Rotherham's specialist recruiter, Stafforce, to launch an Apprentice Training Agency.

Brinsworth Academy of Engineering underwent a restructure recently but continues to focus on its successful divisions of education, workforce development, apprenticeships and commercial recruitment.

The academy hopes to see more employers take on apprenticeships via this service and utilise the offer using the new-style delivery of apprenticeship training in the engineering sector.

The training premises at Templeborough boast an extensively equipped machine shop along with specialist equipment for Mechanical Engineering, Electrical, Electronics, PLC, Instrumentation & Control, CAD CAM and Rapid Prototyping.

Acting as a recruitment agency, the ATA hires out apprentices to "host" employers, matching a suitable apprentice to the organisation's requirements.  Employing the apprentice directly through the ATA is a major benefit to employers, as they will be able to appoint apprentices who have been pre-vetted for their suitability, eliminating the costly recruitment process. It also provides support for the company through managing the apprentices' wages, holidays and any training they may need.

Paul Reeves, business development director for Brinsworth Academy (pictured above, left with Jakki Lovewell, head of Stafforce ATA), said: "We are pleased to be able to add to our apprenticeship offer through this route. The skills and expertise apprentices bring to businesses is vital to the local and wider economy."

Paul Brammer, director of services at Stafforce, added: "We're looking forward to developing a strategic partnership with Brinsworth Engineering Academy and working together to help engineering businesses in the Yorkshire area benefit from apprenticeships and engage with new talent."

Employers are invited to hear more about the offer at a breakfast event at Brinsworth Academy of Engineering on July 3. A keynote speech at the event will be given by Lindsay Middleton, national manager (North) of SEMTA. This will be followed with an overview of the ATA by Jakki Lovewell, head of Stafforce Apprentice Academy, Wayne Miller, employer services manager at the National Apprenticeship Service, and a question and answer session with employer Koyo Bearings Europe.
