Encouraging growth in apprentices starts

JTL, a training provider in support of apprenticeships in building services engineering, has seen an 11.2% growth in recruitment in the twelve months to the end of July 2014.

The increase has been across the country with some of the strongest results in the North West, London and the East of England.

This is the second consecutive year of 11% growth from JTL, driven by a combination of economic improvement as well as improved communication of the offering by the company to electrical, plumbing and heating engineering employers.

Some 80% of new apprenticeship employment has been in small and medium sized businesses.

“We have worked hard at getting  across the message that the services provided by JTL in the administrative management of the current scheme as well as the mentoring and coaching advice by our training officers is provided without cost to the employer,” said JTL operations director Caroline Turner. “There are significant advantages in partnering with a charitable company such as JTL, as opposed to alternative options.”

Of key concern to JTL is getting the message across to young people aged 16-19 that starting an apprenticeship is beneficial for their career.
