#NAW2020 Spotlight on… Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire

7th February 2020

To mark National Apprenticeship Week #NAW2020 the East of England LGA is shining a spotlight on examples of activities and events happening in Councils across the Region to celebrate apprenticeships in local government. Here are just a selection of events and promotional activities taking place across Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire.

Central Bedfordshire Council
Central Bedfordshire Council have arranged to hold interactive information stands, manned by their very own apprentices at their offices in Watling House (Dunstable) and Priory House (Chicksands).

The Communications team are arranging a promotion campaign in their staff newsletter, Twitter and Facebook accounts, as well as their intranet and internet sites which will be providing further details and links for people to make contact.

Hertfordshire County Council
During National Apprenticeship Week Hertfordshire County Council have been promoting and celebrating the positive impact of apprentices at HCC. They have been running several events internally to highlight the huge range of opportunities on offer and encourage employees to “Look Beyond” the traditional routes of recruitment and learning & development.

Hertfordshire County Council currently have 359 people enrolled on apprenticeships working across a variety of areas, including adult social care, engineering, planning, finance, human resources and our fire and rescue service. They are currently welcoming applications to join our next intake of Business Administration apprentices.

North Hertfordshire District Council
At North Hertfordshire District Council there will be a variety of internal communications to raise the profile of their Apprentices, including several articles for the staff magazine.

The East of England LGA is committed to raising awareness of the importance of apprenticeships to our organisations and economies and to help increase the number and uptake of apprenticeships across the region. Working together is the best way to achieve this!
