The Chamber has collaborated with a number of businesses, apprentices and training providers across our region to highlight the benefits of apprenticeships.

Monday – Apprenticeships for All

Apprenticeships are open to all. All ages. All sectors. All levels. All backgrounds.

Apprenticeships develop people with the skills employers need and benefit the economy. They provide a route into successful and fulfilling careers.

Employer Tuesday gave businesses the opportunities to promote themselves and their work with apprenticeship schemes. Employers were encouraged to showcase the range of apprenticeship opportunities they have available and to recruit for any current apprenticeship vacancies.

Apprentice Wednesday – 

A mid-week celebration for current and former apprentices. Spreading the word on how their apprenticeships have given them #skillsforlife, and what they are able to achieve thanks to their apprenticeship.

A day to promote alternate methods of gaining qualifications and training. There are lots of other skills programmes both locally and nationally. These include T-Levels, Skills Bootcamps, Multiply and Higher Technical Qualifications (HTQs).
