Home Instead were winners of the top prize, “The Realise Foundation Apprenticeship Award”, at the recent ‘Newcastle Business Boost’ Awards. In conjunction with PM Training Ltd, who are providing the funding for a new apprentice for a year, Home Instead’s Newcastle and Stoke office has chosen National Apprenticeship Week (7th-11th February ) to launch its search for a new apprentice.
Home Instead, provider of care for adults in their own homes across Newcastle–under-Lyme and Stoke-on-Trent, is keen to give someone the chance to take their first step on the employment ladder.
Owner Paul Edden, who started his own working life as an apprentice with British Telecom, said: “I wholeheartedly believe in apprenticeships as an effective route for people to access employment. I’m delighted that they are now becoming popular again and are a high priority on the government’s skills agenda.”
“For many people this is the best way into employment. Gaining work experience and valuable training whilst being paid a wage often gives people the motivation to really fulfil their potential, perhaps going on to college and having the opportunity to advance themselves within our organisation.”
“My business is continuing to expand and as winners of the ‘Newcastle Business Boost’ award we have already proven that we are a good choice for someone looking for employment. I would like to encourage anyone who is interested in taking this vocational opportunity to learn about all aspects of our business to get in touch right away. You need to be committed and keen to learn, if that’s you, then take the first step to a new career and get in touch.”
