National Apprenticeship Week takes place from 5th to 11th February in 2024. It’s theme for this year is ‘Skills for Life’.
Created to highlight the importance of apprenticeships in the workplace, we felt it important to reinforce this message and demonstrate how they bring such value to our team.
Currently, we have 13 apprentices across our three sites and they undertake roles in engineering, human resources, customer service, data analysis, health and safety and manufacturing.
Their workplace activities and learning are supported by a variety of colleges and training providers, who consolidate the knowledge they are gaining with legislative and technical requirements necessary to achieve the qualifications they are working towards in their respective fields.
“Apprenticeships play a vital role in bringing new talent into the business and developing skills for life and the future team of Board24,” said Judith Chadwick, Head of HR, Board24. “It is so pleasing to see more opportunities available ranging from 16+ apprenticeships up to degree level apprenticeships giving people a chance to learn whilst they earn and be passionate about the career they are embarking upon.
“Over ¾ million apprenticeships were underway during the 2022/23 academic year, and I would hope to see that rise as awareness grows and the range of opportunities widens. It’s also important to note that they are not just for school leavers and young people. There is no upper age limit on who can apply making them perfect for those wishing to retrain or find a new career path.”
