National Apprenticeship Week Begins at ESC
National Apprenticeship Week has come round fast, and it's a busy week at ESC!
Our Employer Services team are out and about in the community, networking with business and talking about how Apprenticeships can benefit both employer and student.
On Monday, Kam Dehal, Vice Principal - Business Development (College Group), and Anthony Ogunyomi, Business Development Advisor at John Ruskin College, attended the Mayor's Business Support Seminar, hosted by Cllr Humayun Kabir, Mayor of Croydon.
The event took place at Croydon Town Hall, and was a chance for the team to speak with businesses about their training needs and Apprenticeships.
This morning, Kam visited Meridian FM, and chatted on-air to Samantha Day about National Apprenticeship, encouraging listeners to explore more about this exciting pathway to a career.
Each day of National Apprenticeship Week, we're asking our Apprentices a question about their experience, so you can get a flavour of what this career route means to them.
