Scarborough TEC launches Yorkshire Employer Services for National Apprenticeship Week

YES Apprenticeship Awards 2020

Scarborough TEC has launched a new employer service, Yorkshire Employer Services (YES) that is responsible for delivering tailored solutions for employers and businesses that will include tailored business solutions, delivery to upskill current employees and a new team with a key focus on Apprenticeship delivery.

YES was launched during National Apprenticeships’ Week at Scarborough TEC with a special awards ceremony dedicated to Apprentices and Employers who were presented with awards and certificates before being served Afternoon Tea by the team at Nineteen09, Scarborough TEC’s onsite restaurant and catering facility.

Alan Hadfield, Head of Apprenticeships, joined Scarborough TEC in August last year and planned the launch of YES  and the awards to coincide with National Apprenticeship Week, Alan explained:

“We’re launching our new brand YES as part of National Apprenticeship Week because we feel that 2020 is the right time to bring a focused business solution to the region.

“Scarborough TEC has previously delivered Apprenticeships but we are now looking at a new type of delivery, especially with the recent and ongoing introduction of Apprenticeship standards. We’re confident that our new brand will reflect our positive approach to offering a service that will meet the needs of employers and Apprentices locally, regionally and nationally.

“YES will have the opportunity to deliver the off-the-job training in some of the best facilities available at Scarborough TEC, including the new Automotive, Construction and Engineering Centre, the onsite IMAGE Hair & Beauty Salon and the skills and production kitchens that sit alongside Nineteen09 Restaurant that were developed as part of Scarborough TEC’s relocation to the Filey Road Campus in 2017.

“We aim to build on the excellent reputation of Scarborough TEC and we have an exceptional team in place to deliver your Apprenticeships and offer qualifications that will lead to fruitful progression; whether that be in employment or continuing the educational journey at university.

“The Apprenticeship Awards, the first of the kind we’ve held at Scarborough TEC, are an excellent way of recognising the dedication and commitment from both Apprentices and Employers in making an Apprenticeship a successful route to careers and Higher Education.”
