National Apprenticeship Week 2018 runs from 5th March to the 9th March.
During this time, apprentices come together to celebrate their successful apprenticeship experiences which include their self-development, promotions, increased professional confidence and also the qualifications they have gained. Employers also celebrate during this time - promoting their own apprentices and demonstrating how vital they are for their businesses.
Apprenticeships are incredibly important for young people who are looking to obtain experience in a business whilst also gaining their desired qualifications - building pathways for their futures.
Principal People are extremely proud of their apprentices - we have had many over the years and we are delighted and honoured that almost all have stayed with us.
One of our apprentices is Jess.
Jess joined the business in June 2016 as a Business Administration apprentice.
Although she enjoyed college and studying Sociology, Psychology and Fine Art, she didn’t see herself going to university and was eager to start earning money and gaining experience through working. Her only problem was her desire to continue learning.
So, an apprenticeship was perfect for her.
“I started off really shy. Which only makes me astounded when I compare myself as to who I was then and who I am now. Working has helped me develop personal and professional confidence to a level I could have only hoped to achieve”
Jess soon realised that she really enjoyed promoting the business through media and marketing platforms and through hard (and excellent) work she has now achieved the position of Marketing and Support Coordinator – which she owns proudly.
She is now undertaking another qualification specific to marketing to progress her knowledge and would recommend further education to anyone and everyone. It is never too late to learn! Find what excites you and pursue it.
