APSCo apprentices to be featured by BBC
The young professionals were invited to share their experiences of working at the association to highlight the benefits of undertaking an apprenticeship, as opposed a more traditional academic route.
APSCo has long been an advocate of vocational training, with previous APSCo apprentices going on to secure permanent roles, and subsequent promotions, within the company. The organisation also promotes the development young talent through its Internship Programme, facilitated by Inspiring Interns, which places undergraduates into paid intern positions within the recruitment profession.
The programme will be aired on BBC 1 South East later this month.
Commenting on the opportunity, Ann Swain, chief executive of APSCo, said, “Apprentices add real value to any organisation, bringing a new perspective and fresh talent into the business. In recent years we have built a strong relationship with apprenticeship provider MiddletonMurray, which has introduced us to school-leavers who have gone on to become valuable members of the APSCo team while subsequently achieving an NVQ in Business and Administration. It’s fantastic that our freshest recruits have been offered the opportunity to publically share their stories. We are always keen to promote the investment in young talent through apprenticeship schemes, and I’d like to wish our new apprentices the best of luck in their future careers. I can’t wait to watch the show.”
