Jobs & Skills

We will work to ensure the voice of business influences training provision and meets the needs of the local economy.

The Get East Hants Working Enterprise Apprenticeship Grant scheme was launched in July 2013. So far (December 2019) the scheme has supported over 63 young people into high quality apprenticeships in the district and provided an additional 7 work placements (pre-apprenticeships, work trials and work experience jobs).

Going forward, the council and Business East Hants will work with employers to develop the scheme, with increased support for higher apprenticeships as a progression route for those with the Level 3 Advanced qualification and an alternative to university. The scheme will remain flexible to include recognised qualifications which fall outside the government apprenticeship framework.
