  • Our regional 'Share to Support' Scheme has already had over £2m of unspent levy pledged to it, we have shared over £1m to over 75 West of England smaller businesses, funding and creating over 200 new apprenticeship opportunities

Building on the WTPN's successful 'Share to Support' levy share scheme model, local employers will be supported in how to 'recruit differently' adress skills gaps and build a more resilient workforce through creating inspiring new apprenticeship opportunities. 

Project Aims

  • Support local employers in and around Temple Quarter and central Bristol that want to enhance their business capability by growing and developing their teams through the power of apprenticeships

  • Ensure that these businesses get free, imparital, expert support and advice to find the right apprenticeship solutions for their workforce and if desired, are supported in how to reach a more diverse and inclusive audience when looking for talent.

  • Utilise the offer of apprenticeship levy share to support small and medium sized employers (to fund any training costs if there are any) from generous corporate and civic gifting organisations

  • Ensure that the local community get sight of the opportunities and are encouraged to apply.

A partnership approach to building a place based eco-system involving the WTPN, the University of Bristol and other corporate, civic and community partners.
