National Apprenticeship week, which runs from 7-11 February 2022, will start with borough council apprentices sharing their experiences at an open morning at the King’s Court office in King’s Lynn.
Apprentices will be on hand to discuss how they have benefited with anyone who is interested in the scheme between 10am and 12noon on Monday 7 February 2022.
The council has run a successful apprenticeship scheme for 10 years, supporting employees by offering a broad spectrum of apprenticeships across a variety of fields.
Lorraine Gore, Chief Executive of the borough council, said: “The council-run apprenticeships provide opportunities for individuals to access training for qualifications and develop relevant work-based skills across a wide range of the council’s activities. These apprenticeships have proved very successful for us as an employer as we gain trained and highly motivated staff and I would encourage other employers to invest in apprenticeship schemes. Equally important, these apprenticeships have provided a route for individuals to achieve personal development and work-based skills and we are proud of what our apprentices have achieved and what they bring to the organisation.
This is part of the campaign that has been run by the East of England Local Government Association since 2017.
