Catalyst welcomes government announcement of 50,000 more apprentices

Responding to the Budget announcements on increased support for apprenticeships, Catalyst Housing Group Chief Executive Rod Cahill said:

“We’re delighted to see the government announcing 50,000 more apprenticeships. Many of our younger residents, particularly those who are not in education, employment or training could really benefit from additional opportunities to help them get in to work. That’s why our new charitable arm, Catalyst Gateway, has set up an accredited pre apprenticeship programme to support young people in gaining the necessary skills to access apprenticeships. We already deliver apprenticeships through our contractors and will be expanding this to deliver apprenticeship opportunities within our own organisation and supporting other local businesses to do the same.”
