Apprenticeship Bursary

North Tyneside Learning Trust has supported employers in North Tyneside, including many Trust Schools, to create over 70 new apprenticeships for young people. The Trust covers half the salary costs by providing a bursary of £3,550. Our apprentices have brought considerable value to their place of work and have worked in a broad range of occupational areas, including engineering, mechanics, business administration and ICT. All of our apprentices are aged 16-18 and have attended a Trust School. Many have already completed their apprenticeship and have remained in employment which is a fantastic achievement. The Trust has agreed funding for a further 20 apprenticeships this year, with schools prioritised as employers in the first instance.  
If you are interested in taking on an apprentice or for more information please contact Craig Reid on 0191 643 2426 or email craig.reid@northtyneside.gov.uk.
