Great Businesses are made by apprentices and apprenticeships lead to “Great Prospects”

That’s the message Milton Keynes College will be shouting out loud and clear to businesses and potential apprentices during National Apprenticeship Week, March 3-7.

National Apprenticeship Week celebrates apprentices’ talent, skills and achievements and proves apprenticeships are great for businesses, great for personal careers and great for creating opportunities for both employers and apprentices.

Milton Keynes College will host a seminar on March 6 for those attending Business Expo 3.0 Milton Keynes. Delegates will hear from:

> A representative from the National Apprenticeship Service.

> Simran Dhesi , a MK College student doing an Advanced Apprenticeship in Business Administration will talk about why she chose the apprenticeship route over university.

> Dianne Cook who heads up the College’s apprenticeship provision will clearly explain and demonstrate how the national apprenticeship program works and the many benefits to businesses achieved by employing an apprentice.

The seminar is open to all businesses and anyone interested in attending should contact Jessica Earp

On March 19, from 5pm-8pm, a dedicated Apprenticeship Zone at the College’s Open Event at the Chaffron Way campus will give potential apprentices information on the broad range of subjects open to them at the College, as well as an opportunity to meet local companies face-to-face already working closely with the College and employing apprentices.

With over 20 years’ experience in delivering high-quality apprenticeship programmes across a wide range of occupational areas, the college works to help local businesses find the right apprentices, and deliver high quality training and development.
