Pledge for 500 Apprenticeships

Friday, 01 May 2015 15:16

History has been made in Staffordshire as influential business leaders came together to solidify their pledge – to provide 500 apprenticeships in 2015 for those aged between 16 – 18 within the region of Staffordshire.

Welcomed by The Lewis Partnership to The Swan, Stafford, Francesco Group Managing Director Ben Dellicompagni greeted guests while giving an overview of apprenticeships and more detail as to why the pledge is something we need to raise awareness of: “The Pledge is something very close to the hearts of not only ourselves but the people of Staffordshire. At such a crucial time within their lives when embarking on their future journeys it is essential that we make our youth aware off the career choices they have and that staying at school is not their only choice. It is our responsibility to make sure that message reaches all of our youngsters so that they can not only support but provide the necessary facilities to steer them in the right direction, ensuring they complete their training as well rounded, presentable and confident skilled young professionals.” 

Next, it was time to hear from three apprentices who each told the story of their individual journey. Alisha from Francesco Group, Hayden of KMF Metal and Rosa of The Lewis Partnership, each shared their own experience with guests, with all having a very positive reflection of their time as apprentices. “ The advice and guidance for 16 year olds needs to be stronger with more awareness raised on this subject,” explained Hayden. “Having such a positive experience myself, has made me realise we need to get the message out there and ensure the career choices for young adults is endless.”
