As nationalapprenticeshipweek launches, celebrating and advocating the benefits of the ‘earn and learn’ model of education and training, we want to reflect on why this model is working so well in Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch (UK) .
After the challenges of the pandemic, apprenticeship recruitment through our college increased by 117% this year, with nearly 1,700 apprentices in training. Apprentices such as our Nurse Associates, are training for key roles in essential services. Our Specialised Chefs work in the highest-end London hotels. More than a few have appeared on television. We have national award-winners and nominees aplenty.
