Apprentice Programme (About)
The Bolsover Apprenticeship Programme created 75 apprenticeship places employing Bolsover residents between January 2010 and June 2012; targeting young people not in employment, education or training (NEET), and unemployed residents in the most deprived areas of the district.
Working in close collaboration with key partner organisations, Bolsover District Council recruited fifteen 16–18 year old NEETs/potential NEETs for up to 18 months to an ‘in house’ apprenticeship programme. The programme also created 60 apprenticeship opportunities for 18-24 year olds and people aged 25+ from unemployment ‘hotspot’ wards. This has enabled public and third sector partners to employ an apprentice to assist their workforce in delivering services to local communities.
