The British Furniture Manufacturers (BFM) has announced that it currently holds new information on the government apprenticeship scheme in furniture manufacture.

Developed by the furniture industry, the new scheme replaces the current apprenticeship framework from 1 December 2016, with all information found on the BFM’s website.

The BFM has also developed a number of guides to support employers and providers interested in the new education standards.

Jackie Bazeley, BFM managing director, said: “Apprenticeships are a great way to enhance a company’s work force, developing skills and bringing a fresh perspective on board. Our website is currently the only essential source of information on the new scheme and we are encouraging all those interested in hiring an apprentice to take a look.”
