Lloyds Banking Group

With a commitment to supporting 8,000 apprenticeship opportunities across Britain by 2020, Lloyds Banking Group (LBG)
says it is well on the way to achieving this target after creating more than 700 in Wales alone since 2012.

This year, LBG is on track to deliver another 100 learning opportunities for internal colleagues, as well as for new recruits from across Wales, breaking down the long-held belief that they are only for young people.

Since 2017, LBG has formed a close relationship with Cardiff and Vale College (CAVC) to collaboratively develop and deliver a suite of seven programmes for staff in Wales. A dedicated CAVC assessment team is located in LBG sites, which improves the apprentices’ experience through offering on-hand help and support.
