GCGP LEP Ambassadors

The aim of the Local Apprenticeship Ambassadors Network (LAAN) is to grow the apprenticeships programme by attracting new employers through business to business engagement in a defined geographical area.

The LAAN is charged with promoting and engaging employers in all aspects of apprenticeships including the developing areas of traineeships, higher level and degree apprenticeships, and new sectors.

Local Apprenticeship Ambassadors are key to local apprenticeship growth and are supporting the government commitment to create 3 million apprenticeships during the lifetime of this parliament.
