National Apprenticeship Week 2017

NAW17 Logo Final


We're excited to announce that it is National Apprenticeship Week!

This week is a great chance to find out about the opportunities that Apprenticeships offer as well as being a time to celebrate the successes of both apprentices and employers.

There will be a broad range of activities occurring throughout the week as well as some very exciting Apprenticeship announcements.

On Monday we will be holding a 'Bring Your Boss to College' event for our Hair & Beauty and Barbering apprentices. There will also be a fantastic cooking demonstration from Alan Hill, the head chef of the Cavendish Hotel.

Tuesday will see our Principal Len swapping roles with an Apprentice for the day as he gets to experience working on site at the Crescent in Buxton.

From 11am - 2pm we will be hosting an Apprenticeship Fair in the Dome on Wednesday, then in the evening our Apprenticeship Employer Dinner will be taking place complete with awards for both employers and apprentices.

During Thursday we will be launching an exciting EngTech mentoring scheme which will run alongside the IMechE's EngTechNow campaign, offering a professional title for technicians and engineers. We will also be holding a drop in for any Childcare and Education students who think an Apprenticeship could be the perfect route for them.
