New Apprenticeship Guide launched during great week

Apprenticeship Week was a great success in Coventry and Warwickshire - and the perfect time to launch Warwickshire County Council's brand new Apprenticeship Guide.

During the week, employers and apprentices from across the region came together to celebrate the success of apprenticeships whilst encouraging even more people to choose apprenticeships as a pathway to a great career.

Warwickshire County Council's business skills advisor Fay Winterburn was hot on the event trail, promoting apprenticeships and the launch of the council's new Coventry and Warwickshire Apprenticeship guide along the way.

“Apprenticeship week for Coventry and Warwickshire was a great success," said Fay. "We are very proud of our local apprenticeship provision and the diverse opportunities available to our future workforce

"Starting with our own Warwickshire Skills conference we saw over 100 businesses, schools, education and training providers join us to discuss our skills challenges. They also received an interesting insight into our local economy, how this is changing, what our future jobs look like and how we can support those important transitions to maintain our fast-growing economy.

"We then saw the Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership and the Career & Enterprise Company welcome over 40 exhibitors and 600 students to their 'Get on Board 2018' event. This gave a great opportunity for Year 10 students to engage with our education and training-providers and explore a variety of apprenticeships over a number of sectors with employer’s such as NHS, JLR, McDonalds and Hilton Hotels.

"To close Apprenticeship Week we exhibited at The Coventry & Warwickshire’s CW Rocks Expo. With over 500 visitors we had many really valuable conversations with businesses and celebrated the week’s success with many education and training providers who also attended."

Warwickshire County Council's new Apprenticeship Guide explains how apprenticeships work, outlines the benefits to employers and young people alike, and has all the contacts you will need if you would like to find out more.
