Leading Edge Magazine
In November 2016, Newcastle-under-Lyme College and Stafford College merged and officially became Newcastle and Stafford Colleges Group (NSCG).
As the region’s leading education and training provider, our Work Based Learning team works collaboratively with employers throughout Staffordshire, Cheshire and Shropshire to foster long term relationships and support both learner development and business growth and prosperity.
Our high quality, flexible service provides expert advice, guidance and support on all aspects of work based learning, including: apprenticeships, traineeships, bespoke training and professional development.
In this edition, we introduce ourselves, highlight recent successes and, in light of the launch of the new Apprenticeship Levy in May 2017 we take a look at what this means for you. With the 10th National Apprenticeships Week fast approaching (6 - 10 March), we also discuss Apprenticeship Standards and the ways we can work with you to provide training solutions to boost your business.
