AN INSIGHT INTO AN ENGINEERING APPRENTICESHIP #NAW2021

THE POLICE APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAMME #NAW2021

During our live Big Assembly, we heard from Gurdeep, a Police Constable Degree Apprentice from West Midlands Police. So we thought we’d drop in with Adeeb Redman, head of The Positive Action Team at West Midlands Police, to find out more about the force’s apprenticeship and degree programme in more detail.

CATCH UP WITH CHANTEL MARSHALL #NAW2021

We get a lot of questions asking whether apprentices are kept on with employers after their apprenticeship ends, so we thought we’d drop in for a catch up with Chantel Marshall, a former apprentice at Travis Perkins and former panelist and host of The Big Assembly back in 2018 and 2019, to see what she’s up to!
