Ladbrokes to Launch First Apprenticeship Scheme

An announcement came this week from major gambling group Ladbrokes plc that it will launch its first apprenticeship scheme after a successful pilot project conducted in two regions of the United Kingdom.

Additional regions will be included in the scheme, such as South Yorkshire, Scotland and London, where 200 apprentices will be targeted by the end of 2013 to join the already completed 50 from the pilot project.

The scheme will be dubbed ‘Get Set!’ and it’s a training program where successful trainees get accredited training in customer service, literacy and numeracy as well as a dedicated course developed by Ladbrokes on Responsible Gambling.

Individual coaching needs will be assessed and delivered by Ladbrokes’ collaborator on the project, Lifetime Training.

Regarding the scheme, Ladbrokes Chief Executive Richard Glynn said: "We are pleased to be extending our first ever apprenticeship scheme to 200 people, offering quality, accredited training to new employees. This is more important than ever given the current employment situation for young people."
