Amazon employee

Amazon has announced it is to fund 300 new apprenticeship positions in the next 12 months across 250 small and medium-sized businesses and partners across the UK.

As a result, the ecommerce giant will support the creation of more than 750 apprenticeships outside of the company in 250 small and medium-sized businesses across England by next year.

The new roles over the next year will be funded by Amazon in small businesses and organisations selling on the store, Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers, creative industry partners and local authorities through the company’s apprenticeship levy.

It will also cover a range of schemes from digital marketing to visual effects, lasting between 12-48 months and include apprenticeship standards up to £27,000.

Apprentices will also receive a mix of on-the-job and classroom training.

“We are proud of the positive impact the Amazon Apprenticeship Fund has created for apprentices, companies and communities across England,” Amazon country manager John Boumphrey said.

“It means people across the country have been given a head-start in their career, or transferred into a new career with the right support and opportunities.

“As we expand, we hope other larger employers will also choose to transfer some of their unspent levy to create more valuable apprenticeship roles for people across England to gain new skills, supporting productivity and innovation.”
