I've had a fantastic day meeting with students and local apprentices to find out more about their courses and the opportunities available around our area.
I popped into Tui on the high street to see the work they are doing with a local school to offer work experience and an insight into their apprenticeship scheme. From my conversations with the students, it's clear that they found it really useful to get a sense of the course and the job itself. A win-win scenario for both the girls and the business!
I also visited the National Grid Training Centre at Eakring with Mark Spencer MP, where we spoke to apprentices. The programs they run at the Centre are nationally recognised for the amazing standard of training they provide - great to have this kind of opportunity right on our doorstep!
