Apprentice Learning Network Event

We are unbelievably proud to have Apprentices who attend the Apprentice Learning Networking Group which provides support, learning and networking opportunities to Apprentices across the Borough of Poole & Skills & Learning, Bournemouth, Dorset and Poole. Our Apprentice, Freya Kendall, works alongside two fellow Apprentices Nick Hillman & Angel Martin, as well as the Borough of Poole HR department and Unison, where they organise events to help Apprentices get the most out of their qualification – Whether that is more learning opportunities, on top of the qualification learning element, networking or development opportunities.

The 3rd event took place in September 2017 and they focused on team building exercises to add to the Apprentice’s employability skills & development. Pete, a member of Unison, was also invited in to come and discuss learning opportunities they can access and Stevie, from Stour Valley and Poole Partnerships (SVPP) service, came in to discuss what makes a good team.

The Apprentices described the event as ‘Thoroughly enjoyable’ while providing them with useful information to help prepare  for their Apprenticeship and afterwards. It is a perfect opportunity to learn, network and develop away from the working environment and with others who are experiencing the same process.

The group is supported by Unison & has recently been recognised on a National level. We’re so proud to support such a wonderful development opportunity and hope this will continue.
