As students are returning to schools and universities, at Steve Willis Training we are finding that the Apprenticeship option is more popular than ever. For the first time since the Burgess Hill Training Centre opened in 2000 all three of our apprenticeship programmes were oversubscribed even before the big exam results days in August.
We’re pleased that more and more young people are taking up the option of an apprenticeship and choosing to earn while they learn a trade that can set them up with a career for life.
If any BHBPA members know young people who are thinking about a gas, plumbing or electrical apprenticeship for 2018 we’ll be having the first of our open days later in the year – I’ll let you know the details when we’ve finalised them.
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
