This year Small Business Saturday is on 1st December 2018 - Small Business Saturday 2017 was another huge success – and 2018 is going to be even bigger as more and more businesses join the campaign.

It was estimated that shoppers spent around £748 million in local businesses on the day, so isn’t it time YOUR business benefitted from the Campaign? According to an American Express survey conducted in the 48 hours following the 2017 campaign spend jumped 4% that year. Furthermore, 56% of customers who were surveyed said they spent more than usual on the day.

Free campaign toolkit and logos can be downloaded from the Small Business Saturday web site and why not join in the social media campaign – last year #smallbizsatuk was the number one trend on Twitter on the day in the UK – that’s a lot of coverage, and it’s all free! This year there’s even a Small Business Saturday App – why not download it and join the campaign?

Bolsover District Council has put economic growth at the heart of its ambition and priorities, as seen in our Growth Strategy – ‘Unlocking our Growth Potential’.

Apprentices must be aged 16 or over and combine working with studying for a work-based qualification - from GCSE's or equivalent up to degree level. They are an excellent way to find eager employees who will be trained up to a high level in order to provide them with the skills needed to perform their job. We work with partners to promote and recruit apprenticeships within the District and you may be able to get funding to help employ an apprentice. The Apprentices can be new or current employees and more detail can be found on Gov.uk website.

Degree Apprenticeships

Higher and degree apprenticeships are available at levels 4 to 7 and combine work with study and may include a work-based, academic or combined qualification or a professional qualification relevant to the industry. If you would like to find out more, please visit Gov.uk or Sheffield Hallam University.

Apprenticeship Levy

In April 2017 the way the government funds apprenticeships in England is changing. Some employers will be required to contribute to a new apprenticeship levy, and there will be changes to the funding for apprenticeship training for all employers.

Meeting the Public Sector Apprenticeship Target

As an authority we have always been pro-active in encouraging young people to take up traineeships and apprenticeships to gain the necessary skills, qualifications and experience so they are work-ready.
The introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy April 2017 meant all public bodies with 250 or more staff had to employ an average of at least 2.3% of their staff as new apprenticeship starts.

We actively consider apprenticeships either for new recruits or as part of career development for our existing staff. For 2017/18 we had a target of 12 apprentices, which we achieved with apprenticeships in Business Administration, ICT, Leisure Management, Activity Leadership, Accountancy, Horticulture, Plumbing, Automotive, Customer Service, Level 2 and Level 3.

We are committed to regenerating our towns and villages and by attracting investment such as The Coalite development as it provides much needed job opportunities and helps improve the local economy. We are keen to support any development proposals, whether they are an existing business looking to expand or a company looking to relocate to our district. We also work very closely with developers and local businesses to make sure we maximise any employment, skills and training opportunities for the benefit of local people.

We have a team of people who will help to ensure developers and individuals receive good, factual advice, information and guidance to make their plans a reality and can also offer a bespoke support package to suit particular needs and will also provide an aftercare management service beyond project inception.

We also stage regular Business Network events throughout the year, giving businesses in Derbyshire the chance to share ideas and best practice, whilst also finding out about the latest funding streams or training opportunities available. So, if you have a business proposal or just want some help and advice, contact us now.

 

 

 

We believe access to super-fast broadband is vital to improve life for residents and it is vital for businesses growth and long term job creation in the District, that's why we are working with Derbyshire County Council (DCC) to try and improve broadband services.

DCC's Digital Derbyshire programme is looking to improve the broadband infrastructure to allow better connection speeds and is working with BT to manage the rollout of BDUK funds to support greater access to faster connectivity. Digital Derbyshire also have a postcode tracker on their website so you can find out more about your area.
