Growing numbers of people are to be taken on as part of the LV= apprenticeship programme, it has been revealed.
According to the insurance, retirement and investment group, it will extend the scheme that was first established in 2008 and has since led to 150 members of staff taking part.
The initiative takes 12 months to complete, with those passing successfully receiving an NVQ level two, as well as a Chartered Institute of Insurance foundation qualification.
Commenting on the news, David Smith, LV= human resources director, said: "We pride ourselves on recruiting the best people in the industry and by providing an apprenticeship scheme we can ensure those staff stay with us and we develop their talent."
He added many of those who graduate often sign up to participate in the advanced apprenticeship scheme also offered by the company.
