Commenting on the Education & Skills Funding Agency’s announcement of a post-16 provider relief scheme which will seek to continue education and training during the coronavirus pandemic, BCC Head of People Policy Jane Gratton said:

“This much needed fund will help to ensure SMEs and their apprentices can continue to access training throughout the pandemic and into the recovery period.

“To ensure businesses have the skills they need for the future, it is vital that apprentices are supported to complete their apprenticeship programme. The relief fund will put many training providers in a stronger position to support employers now and in the year ahead.

“Businesses have invested in apprenticeships to boost the quantity and quality of technical skills in the workplace and provide routes to well-paid career opportunities for employees of all ages.”
