Derwent Training to offer Level 3 Team Leader and Supervisor Apprenticeship.

Derwent Training to offer Level 3 Team Leader and Supervisor Apprenticeship.

Since early 2019, it was apparent that leaving the EU would have a largely negative impact on most sectors in the UK, certainly in the short term. Research from the York and North Yorkshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), highlights a lack of training for leaders in the region. Such a deficit ultimately impacts on growth and productivity.

These apprenticeships are supported by Government funding and available to an employee of any age.
