Here at KHT we are committed to supporting young people and as a part of this have recently taken on 17 new apprentices in multiple areas across the business, that’s almost 120 in the past 7 years! These recent additions make the First Ark Group one of the largest apprentice employers in Knowsley.
Throughout the year our apprentices will gain valuable work experience, training towards NVQ level 3, while earning a wage and receiving mentor support. Many of our apprentices go on to obtain full time positions, either with KHT or with other employers.
A key objective of KHT is to create a positive social impact across the borough, which goes hand in hand with getting young people into employment especially via apprenticeships. From progression into sustained employment and the actual apprenticeship programme KHT, has generated £235,992 in social value this year.
