New range of Apprenticeship programmes

Truro and Penwith College Business believes Apprenticeships will play a key role in COVID-19 recovery thanks to significant government investment, the flexibility to train current staff or add capacity and the wide range of programmes available.

Thanks to a £695 million government scheme introduced in 2018 SME employers are only required to pay 5% of Apprenticeship training costs, and with large employers constantly building their Apprenticeship Levy, Apprenticeships are one of the most cost-effective training options.
