It was very disappointing to learn in May that the Government had pulled the funding from the Skills Agency to the Providers, Buckingham County Council, which allowed them to provide apprentices training by non-funded agencies, that is to say, by charities. Our contract to provide apprentice training will therefore come to an end in April 2018.
We learnt in April that due to changes in Government funding Buckinghamshire County Council will no longer be able to employ the company to provide training for apprentices. This will bring to an end many years of successful training as we operate a run-down contract, completing qualifications for those registered before April 2017 and completing twelve month’s apprenticeship and training. We are grateful for all the work done by Alan Hestor for the success of this contract with a successful audit by Buckingham C. C.
