A plea has gone to out to business leaders to ensure their apprentices train at Peterborough’s new university
The call comes from officials at ARU Peterborough who want company bosses to ensure at least one apprentice from each firm is enrolled at the £30 million university, which opens to students at the Embankment in September.
Now employers are being urged to sign up to the university’s Peterborough 50 apprenticeship pledge that aims to create jobs growth and to develop a highly-skilled workforce for the future prosperity of Peterborough.
University principal Professor Ross Renton said: “We are looking to continue to grow our portfolio of degree apprenticeships over the next 12 months, and we would be keen to hear from any companies who would like to discuss their training needs, or would like to sign up to our Peterborough 50 apprenticeship pledge. “We want companies to work with us to make Peterborough a skills powerhouse through Degree Apprenticeships.”
