Apprenticeship 500′ Alliance

Erith are proud to become the first employer to pledge 10 apprenticeships as part of Milestone Foundation’s Apprenticeship 500 Club. The Club, which was held at the House of Lords on Friday 30th October, was attended by over 300 guests representing the education, public, private and not for profit sectors.

The Alliance has been formed by the Foundation to provide sustainable apprenticeship opportunities, with an appropriate wage to 500 young people through its partner network during 2016. The Alliance intends to maximise employer engagement in the delivery of the apprenticeship framework to help drive improvements in success rates, sustainable employment and increased industry activity and acceptance.

Stuart Accleton, Erith’s Operations Director commented: “Erith are pleased to announce their pledge to the 500 ‘Alliance to aspire young individuals within the construction industry’.”
