LLETS - opportunities for local employers
LLETS develops business and people.
Trainees and Apprentices
Businesses everywhere are benefiting greatly from the Welsh Government's Traineeship and Apprenticeship programme!
LLETS, a Swansea based Training Provider which delivers vocational training via Traineeships and Apprenticeships, is helping businesses by delivering high quality training and supplying them with the staff they need.
A young person wishing to pursue a Traineeship will require a work placement and will receive a Training Allowance. The employer will not be required to pay the Trainee a wage.
An individual wishing to pursue an Apprenticeship must be in employment or about to start. Although, an employer is responsible for paying an Apprentice a wage, the Welsh Government covers the cost of the training, with support from the European Social Fund.
Employers wishing to recruit an Apprentice may be eligible for a £50 per week wage subsidy for 52 weeks under the Welsh Government's 'Young Recruits Programme'.
