How we supported this year's National Apprenticeship Week
We hosted a class of local school children who took their IT lesson at Ringley, learning how to upgrade old computers.
The 2020 National Apprenticeship Week ? now in its thirteenth year - was held earlier this month from 3 to 9 February. At Ringley, we believe passionately in providing training opportunities for young people and we are a strong supporter of apprenticeships. During the week we posted blogs sharing the different ways we help young people to get a flavour of the property industry, showcasing staff members who have taken the first steps in their careers via Ringley apprenticeships.
That week more than 900 events took place around the country, celebrating the diversity of apprenticeships on offer. In addition:
- New Mumsnet research revealed parental misconceptions of apprenticeships
- Social media activity soared, with #NAW2020 trending No. 1, UK wide on launch day;
- #AskAnApprentice and #AskAnEmployer online Q&As reached hundreds of employers and individuals
We got involved too. Here?s how we spent the week: First, we hosted a class of local school children who took their IT lesson at Ringley learning how to upgrade old computers. We allocated 10 computers for the school to gift to underprivileged children ? which was a far better outcome than all the PCs you see in city office clearances thrown into skips. We also announced a new position in our London office for a digital marketing apprentice and we spent time reviewing dissertations with our Masters apprentices.
We work hard to create opportunities for our young people and we are delighted when they go on to make successful careers in our sector. So a big ?thank you? from us to everyone for getting involved in National Apprenticeship Week 2020.
