Also, Heart of the South West Apprenticeship Service provides fully funded training and support to equip your business with the skills you need to grow.

The service can provide businesses in Devon and Somerset with:

• Recognised accredited qualifications and bespoke training courses for their employees to enhance their skills and progress into apprenticeships.
• Business support to enable you to take advantage of Apprenticeship opportunities that work for your business.

Businesses can take advantage of one or both of these opportunities. The programme is co-financed by the European Social Fund (ESF) and the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA). This means that there is no cost to the business.

The service is managed by Serco and delivered through a network of high quality training providers. Read more on the Apprenticeship PDF Apprenticeship PDF.
