A new Higher Apprenticeship in project management scheme has been jointly launched by global manpower specialist NES Global Talent and apprenticeship consultancy PDS Group to help fill the skills gap.
AIM Academy, NES Global Talent’s specialist training division, helped the Association for Project Management develop the scheme and has been appointed to deliver it to companies across the country.
Lasting approximately two years, the scheme can be delivered at one of the company’s training centres or on-site, depending on requirements.
Lee Knowles, Regional Director UK at NES Global Talent, says: “Over recent years there has been increasing concern surrounding the ageing workforce profile in engineering and technical sectors and the impending skills gap.
“The Higher Apprenticeship scheme has been developed to enable companies to recruit staff at entry level, and through a combination of formal and on-the-job training, arm them with the skills required to become valuable members of staff.”
