With the recent announcement of the increased funding available for Traineeship programmes made by Chancellor Rishi Sunak, Sheffield Wednesday Community Programme are looking for local businesses to work in partnership with. This new development aims to create more jobs for young people by providing funding to employers, who offer work placements for learners aged 16-24 on a Traineeship programme.
