Ladder for Shropshire

The Ladder for Shropshire campaign was launched on the 1st October 2020, as a one-stop-shop to offer impartial advice and support to encourage employers to offer apprenticeships, traineeships and kickstart opportunities. Amanda Carpenter joined as the Project Lead with a goal of encouraging as many employers as possible to offer a young person an opportunity.  Amanda would like to talk to any employers who would like to find out more about the benefits of taking on a young person, details about the grants and incentives on offer and any questions they may have to help them with their decision. 

Youth unemployment has doubled since the beginning of the year and the number of apprenticeships on offer is almost 50 per cent lower than this time last year, so the more businesses that we can engage with the more of an impact we can make for young people and for the local economy.
