BWF help for employers with woodworking apprenticeships and training
British Woodworking Federation
The BWF’s Woodworking Industry Training Forum (WITForum) has produced new guidance for employers lconsidering taking on apprentices in the joinery industry.
The guidance follows calls from the membership about the various different options available to them and the continuously changing rules and funding regimes.
The guidance was provided to delegates at the BWF’s Members’ Day/Annual Conference in Loughborough and is now available on the website.
While the WIT Forum guidance focuses on employers in England at present, specific guidance for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will be available shortly.
The guidance is part of a wider WITForum initiative to qualify the workforce in the joinery industry, which is being supported with funding by CITB-ConstructionSkills.
In addition to employer guidance, the WITForum will be launching guidance and a social media campaign aimed at potential entrants, helping them to gain entry to the joinery industry.
