Shared Apprenticeships

Incentive Scheme

Shared Apprenticeships South West has initiated an Incentive Scheme. It’s aim is to make it more appealing for current apprentices to recommend the SASW to friends, family, coworkers or acquaintances. After a successful recommendation apprentices will receive vouchers to either Amazon, Screwfix or Jewsons to encourage them to spend it wisely and help them in their chosen career.
