Harrogate College, part of Luminate Education Group is excited to announce our 100 in 100 apprenticeship campaign across all our FE colleges.

The college provides a choice of high-quality education and support whilst working with and for the local community. The college educates students from all walks of life and takes pride in helping them reach their potential in a safe and caring environment.

Through the 100 in 100 campaign, we aim to help improve the local economic growth in a number of ways. By creating new career opportunities for young people most at risk of long-term unemployment after the pandemic, we will help develop skills, wages and support the future career progression of apprentices across the West Yorkshire and North Yorkshire regions.

Benefits of an apprenticeship

Hiring an apprentice can help your business to develop talent, improve productivity and future-proof your company’s workforce. It is also a great opportunity for you to reduce recruitment costs and have access to high-quality training and support. 

Apprenticeships can be used to bridge the skills gap. By recruiting and training apprentices, you can develop people in a way that promotes the specific skills required by your business and industry. Apprenticeships are particularly cost-effective as a form of training, because young people are making a contribution to the workplace while they are learning.

86% of employers said apprenticeships developed skills relevant to their organisation and 78% reported improved productivity.

90% of apprentices stay on in their place of work after completing an apprenticeship.

There’s a wide selection of apprenticeships available covering lots of different job roles.
