Apprenticeship Challenge 2020
Following the success of two heats in January and March 2020, our finalists produced a short video clip to explain what we need to do to promote apprenticeships in local government as exciting, valuable recruitment and development opportunities, and an accompanying leaflet. Both apprentices have kindly given permission to share their submissions for local authorities in the East of England to use to promote apprenticeships in local government:
Katy Whiting – Apprenticeship Leaflet
Katy Whiting – Digital clip promoting apprenticeships
Ellena Steward – Apprenticeship Leaflet
Ellena Steward – Digital clip promoting apprenticeships
Our thanks to Katy and Ellena for sharing their submissions – the standard of these submissions was exceptional.
