ExxonMobil at Fawley donates £25,000 apprenticeship credit to fund FIVE business apprenticeships
Posted on: 19th November 2020
Oil giant ExxonMobil, which owns the refinery at Fawley, has pledged £25,000-worth of government apprenticeship credit to fund five business apprenticeships through Brockenhurst College.
The sum is part of £85,000 of unused Apprenticeship Levy funding the company has pledged to the government’s Transfer to Transform Scheme.
The idea is to redirect unused funds to small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) to help them train new staff and/or upskill existing workers.
As a result, local SMEs and budding business professionals will now benefit, with the College acting as the training provider.
Head of Curriculum for Business Apprenticeships at Brockenhurst College, Mark Thomsett, said: “This extra funding means we can go even further in providing new opportunities for people and small businesses at this difficult time.
“I’d like to extend my sincere thanks to ExxonMobil at Fawley for their clear sense of community responsibility in allocating part of their unused entitlement to Brock.”
