Chamber, which has taken space in Hanover Street, is now delivering apprenticeships to more than 600 people across the Liverpool city region
St Helens Chamber has opened an office in Liverpool city centre as it expands its apprenticeship and training delivery across Merseyside.
The chamber, which has taken space at the Merseyside Youth Association headquarters in Hanover Street, is now delivering apprenticeships to more than 600 people across the Liverpool city region.
It will be offering its ‘Fast-track to Apprenticeships’ programme from the new base from August 1, providing the skills, knowledge and qualifications young people need to start a successful career.
John Westhead, director of training services at St Helens Chamber, said: “St Helens Chamber has been steadily growing its training offer in the Liverpool area over the last two years.
“During this time we have been co-located alongside Liverpool & Sefton Chambers of Commerce on Old Hall Street in the city’s business district, but this move will allow us to be more centrally located and offer better access to young people.”
This summer St Helens Chamber will also be launching ‘Apprenticeships for Liverpool’ ̶ a campaign to bring high quality apprenticeship training to Liverpool and raise awareness of their benefits
Mr Westhead added: “Our approach to helping young people into apprenticeships has a proven track record of success, and we are very keen to offer this to more young people in the Liverpool area.
“Apprenticeships are a fantastic way for people at the start of their careers to get into work, and earn a realistic salary whilst they learn. They offer great opportunities for progression and future careers so I am keen to share this message as widely as possible.”
