Back by Popular Demand: the Brooklands College Apprenticeship Breakfast!
Brooklands’ award winning apprenticeship team hosted their annual Apprenticeship Breakfast on Thursday 9th March. The event, designed to keep employers up-to-date with developments in the field, welcomes employers from throughout Surrey and across many different sectors of employment.
Guests were treated to a full English breakfast, made and served by the college’s very own Catering and Hospitality students while listening to speakers from the Association of Learning Providers (ALPS), Lee Marley Brickwork Ltd and some of the colleges own apprentices.
Sue Taylor, Network Manager at ALPS and speaker at the event commented, “Apprenticeships are a serious alternative to the traditional university pathway and hold many benefits to the learner and employer. There are a lot of developments happening in the field at the moment, including the Government Apprenticeship Levy. Use your local college, they are the experts and they will help you understand these changes”.
It has been proved that apprentices are good for business; companies who use apprentices benefit from higher productivity and reduced staff turnover. The government is emphasizing the needs to fill the skills gap in the UK and has set a target to achieve 3 million apprentice position by 2020.
