Creating local jobs for young people in local government.
The East Midlands Improvement & Efficiency Partnership (EM IEP), in partnership with the East Midlands Councils, the National Apprenticeship Service (NAS) and Unionlearn, is proud to launch the East Midlands Local Authorities Apprenticeship Agency (EMLAAA).
In the last decade Apprenticeship numbers have already more than trebled. Apprenticeships bring considerable value to organisations, employers, individuals and the economy. Organisations across the country are now increasingly realising the enormous benefits that Apprenticeships create, not only in terms of a highly skilled workforce but also by boosting productivity
and staff retention.

EMLAAA seeks to stimulate at least 300 16 to 18 year old Apprenticeship starts across the region in Local Authorities, Schools &
Children's Services, and the five Fire Authorities. The planned starts include 20% from Black Minority Ethnic Groups and 5% from those identified as being part of the PSA 16* category.
EMLAAA will play a role in coordinating quality assured training providers who will be fully funded by the NAS to provide
Apprenticeship training for 16 to 18 year olds (the NAS does not pay wage or other costs). The duration of the Apprenticeship programme depends on the discipline and the level; however, the average duration for a Level 2 is 15 months and for a Level 3 is 25 months. There are almost 190** Apprenticeship frameworks at Levels 2, 3 and 4.
Each of the four partners has agreed to resource the project and is committed to its success. Local Authorities / Schools/ Fire and Rescue Authorities' commitment is required to host Apprentices for suitable employment and training, pay at least the national minimum Apprenticeship wage, and support the training programmes funded by the NAS and delivered by the accredited training provider.
