An apprenticeship charter has been signed between North Somerset Council and UNISON.
The agreement will ensure apprenticeships deliver positive outcomes for both apprentices and employers in the region.
Last year, more than 100 apprentices attended training events through the council’s joint apprenticeship forum across North Somerset.
UNISON is one of country’s largest trade unions, representing more than 1.3million people across the UK’s public services.
The council’s head of performance improvement, Paul Morris, said: “We are pleased to be able to provide opportunities for apprentices.
“Our apprenticeship programmes are hugely successful and allow us to grow our own talent, including in hard-to-fill roles such as engineering and social care.
“Apprenticeships bring new skills designed around our business needs and help to ensure a skilled workforce for the future.”
