The criteria for my £1.8m Employer-Led Apprenticeship Creation Programme stated that applications for grant funding from organisations demonstrating that they could deliver apprenticeships in key sectors and sectors with traditionally fewer apprenticeships would be viewed favourably. Projects from organisations that proposed to work within Digital Technology, Creative and Cultural, and Social Care sectors have now been selected through a competitive application process. Targets for the age of individuals starting an apprenticeship and the level of the apprenticeship created were not specified, however this information will be collected and reported to the GLA.
