Deadline Looms for Government Apprenticeship Incentive

Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber Training is reminding employers that there is still time to take advantage of Government financial incentives for recruiting a new apprentice before the deadline of 30th September 2021.

Commenting on apprenticeships, Sally Lucas, Executive Director of Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber Training said it was the perfect time for businesses to take on an apprentice.
