The UKs only large scale apprenticeship scheme for the recruitment industry opens for business

The UKs only large scale apprenticeship scheme for the recruitment industry opens for business
 
Expedient Training Consultancy's fully-funded Recruitment Apprenticeship Scheme opens this week for applications from potential employers and candidates.  The scheme, which is the UK's only large scale apprenticeship package designed exclusively for the recruitment industry, has been 12 months in the making and includes the entry-level Certificate in Recruitment Practice delivered by the REC.  
 
Accredited by Educational Development International (EDI) and Edexcel, the scheme offers recruitment businesses (both recruitment agencies and recruitment divisions within corporates) a unique opportunity to take on new young recruits with a fully-funded and structured framework for their training needs, reduced salary costs and reduced hiring costs.  The scheme is targeted at undergraduates (11 A-level students) but is also open to all candidates. Paul Deen, Expedient Training Consultancys Marketing Director says The Recruitment Apprenticeship Scheme has been developed after lengthy consultation with the recruitment industry to understand the training needs of new young recruits entering this market.  The scheme is fully funded which, combined with government regulations allowing apprentice wages to be significantly lower than the national minimum, means this is a really cost-effective way for recruitment businesses to grow in these challenging times.
 
The Recruitment Apprenticeship Scheme is not just restricted to new recruits.  Recruitment businesses may also be eligible to take advantage of the funded training and support for any existing staff in their organization. Deen continues The scheme is tremendously beneficial for the whole business - employees enjoy a structured learning programme, gain four recognised qualifications, improve their skills and build a solid career path whilst the employer not only feels the benefits to the business in the skills acquired but also nurtures the motivation and loyalty of their staff a total win-win.
 
Expedient Training Consultancy is committed to providing a total of 150 apprenticeships in London, Manchester and Birmingham and has already received overwhelmingly positive feedback from the industry. Mark Kieve, Chief Executive of the e-recruitment platform Amris says Theres no doubt the recruitment industry will benefit enormously from this new initiative, its a fantastic opportunity for both employers and young people and will help further professionalise the industry.
 
Established in 08, Expedient offers fully funded work based learning across a range of sectors and enjoys an extremely high success rate.  Stuart Garnett, Expedient Training Consultancys Managing Director commented "We have been delighted with the response from recruitment companies, from boutique agencies through to high street chains. Our team has worked very hard to design a package that will appeal to the recruitment industry and offer a new and cost-effective alternative in todays climate.
 
Only 150 fully funded apprenticeships are available so employers and candidates need to act quickly to ensure they dont miss out.  To find out more and apply visit: www.recruitment-apprenticeship.co.uk or call Sue Reader (for Manchester and Birmingham placements) or Paul Deen (for London placements) on 0800 612 5402.
