Aspire Housing has happily been featured on the Government’s Top 100 Apprenticeship employers ranking 2020, placing 12th! This list features the top companies that have done the most to provide successful apprenticeships over the previous 12 months, including companies from many different sectors including the public sector, the third sector, hospitality, telecommunications, and accountancy.
We are very excited that we have achieved this and that we have been recognised for our effort that we put into providing apprenticeship opportunities, creation of new apprenticeships, the diversity of apprentices, and the progression of apprentices onto further apprenticeships and employment. One of our key goals is to support social regeneration within our communities, and our apprenticeship and employment support programmes are central to this strategy.
We work alongside PM Training, who work with around 1,600 employers across Staffordshire and nationally, providing help and support at every stage of the apprenticeship. It is lovely to see our apprentices develop and improve during their time with us, we are thrilled with his news!
Here are some insights from us:
“We’re delighted to be named a Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer. As a group, one of our key goals is to support social regeneration within our communities, and our apprenticeship and employment support programmes are central to this strategy. We have a set a target of having apprentices as 10% of our total workforce. We know the high social cost of long-term unemployment on both individuals and communities, and it is for this reason that we are committed to investing time, resources and effort in providing apprenticeships. We’re proud to be recognised on this list.”
“We provide a proven route to supporting people through their apprenticeship, into employment and beyond. It’s a fantastic achievement for Aspire to be recognised as the highest ranked housing provider on this list. Investing in young people in our communities, and supporting them into work, is vital – at this time, more than any other.”
