The Liverpool City Region (LCR) Apprenticeship Hub is a collaborative group, responsible to the LCR Employment and Skills Board. Funded by the European Social Fund through the Education Skills Funding Agency, we aim to increase the awareness, number and quality of apprenticeships available to regional residents by supporting and coordinating activities, making apprenticeships work for businesses and individuals.
Ensuring that our residents and young people in particular have the right skills for the modern workplace is vital both for their futures and the country's future economic prosperity. High quality apprenticeships are key to making that happen. We have a proud history of apprenticeships in the Liverpool City Region and value highly the opportunities and benefits they offer to individuals, businesses and local economy.
With European Social Funding, the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority has commissioned the Apprenticeship Growth Plan 2018-2020 to create the right environment to grow the volume and breadth of apprenticeships available locally. The Growth Plan is a call to action for stakeholders across the Liverpool City Region to work together under a shared ambition to grow and develop the apprenticeship programme and create the right environment for apprenticeships success. Our aspiration is to deliver: 20,000 apprenticeships per annum by 2020.
