ROSEANNA URGES LOCAL EMPLOYERS TO APPLY FOR APPRENTICESHIP GRANT

Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP is highlighting to local employers the availability of a £15 million Apprenticeship Employer Grant from the Scottish Government.

Marking Scottish Apprenticeship Week, that runs from 1st to 7th March, Roseanna is encouraging employers to access the fund.

The grant will help increase the number of employers able to take on an apprentice or upskill an existing staff member. The fund closes on 25th March or once funding levels are exceeded.

Commenting, Roseanna said:

“The COVID-19 pandemic has hit the jobs and opportunities available for young people and employers have faced incredible challenges due to the pandemic – that’s why the SNP Government has introduced the Apprenticeship Employer Grant.

“To mark Scottish Apprenticeship Week, I am encouraging local businesses in my Perthshire South & Kinross-shire constituency to register for the scheme and take on apprentices – creating jobs and teaching our young people new skills.

“Alongside the Young Person’s Guarantee, the Scottish Government is taking steps to ensure we build a resilient recovery.  To do that we need a resilient workforce and our young people will be at the very heart of that.”
