Torbay’s new Apprenticeship Working Group has launched the all new #ApprenticeTakeover campaign to celebrate National Apprenticeship Week.
National Apprenticeship Week brings a whole host of exciting and informative events to the table, not to mention opportunities to speak to actual apprentices and employers.
To this end both the Torbay Business Forum breakfast, on the 5th March and the Torbay Jobs fair on the 8th March will be taken over by apprentices from South Devon College, Torbay Council and the TDA.
Rebecca Davies, TDA Senior Economic Development Officer and Chair of the Apprenticeship Working Group said:
“We’re challenging businesses to take part in National Apprenticeship Week and to join the #ApprenticeTakeover on social media, it’s a fun and engaging way to showcase their apprentice’s talent!
We’d like to see more companies and organisations across all sectors give their apprentices the opportunity to showcase their talent, put them in the driving seat and let them take centre stage. It would be great to see an apprentice as Head Chef for the day, an apprentice as CEO, an apprentice leading a sales meeting, or an apprentice running an event.”
Hiring an Apprentice?
As a business, you may be considering hiring an apprentice but have questions.
Fear not, as part of the week you will be able to ask questions, and get information at a dedicated Apprenticeship Business Seminar on the 8th March 2019.
The seminar is delivered completely free and will help you put some or even all of your concerns to rest.
#Apprentice Takeover at the Torbay Business Forum Breakfast
Apprentices from Torbay Council, South Devon College and the TDA will be taking over the running of your Torbay Business Forum Breakfast on the 5th March.
Steve Reynolds, Chair of the Torbay Business Forum said:
“We’re delighted to be taking part in the #ApprenticeTakeover. It will give local apprentices the opportunity to manage a real business networking event and be part of the show!
TDA will be running a free information seminar on 8 March at the Riviera International Conference Centre, which is an event for businesses to engage, inform and inspire. Working Group partners will present the benefits of apprentices and what businesses need to do to have an apprentice, addressing issues and myth busting.
