Promoting our apprenticeships

Image of poa.jpg for Promoting our apprenticeships

During National Apprenticeship Week a team of our current apprentices joined forces for a volunteering project while one of our former apprentices has enjoyed some time in the local limelight.

Apprentices and staff from across the business spent two days repainting the doors and windows of Blenkin Hall at Boston Stump as part of a project run in partnership with Boston College.

The two organisations work together on the Society’s apprenticeship scheme, which sees people undertake apprenticeships in retail, travel, pharmacy and now post offices.

Matt Warman MP visited the Blenkin Memorial Hall to meet with our apprentices who were volunteering.

Matt said: “I was delighted to take the opportunity to meet with some of the 4,740 apprentices we have had in Boston and Skegness since 2010. The opportunity to earn and learn, supported by the Government’s commitment to establish an independent, employer led, Institute for Apprenticeships to regulate the quality of apprenticeships in England, is an attractive alternative route for young people to gain skills and enter the workplace”.

One of our former superstar apprentices has also been promoting the opportunities we have available by sharing her story on local radio and in the media.

Kelsey Roberts has just completed her travel apprenticeship with us and landed a job working as a Cruise Specialist at Tritton Road Travel branch.

"So far I’ve surprised myself with what my apprenticeship has allowed me to achieve," she said. "I’m one of Lincolnshire Co-op Travel’s top salespeople and I’ve only been in the business a couple of years.

"I’ve fallen in love with the travel industry, added loads of relevant experience to my CV and earned an NVQ in customer service. I love my job and I’d recommend an apprenticeship to anyone.”
