What is an Apprenticeship Ambassador?  Apprenticeship Ambassadors volunteer their time and use their own positive apprenticeship experience as a powerful way to inspire and inform other young people to consider an apprenticeship as a career path.

You will get a great induction and support from the network, so you don’t need to have done anything like this before.

‘Studying through an apprenticeship was the best choice I ever made! I’ve almost completed a fully funded degree with no debts, have ample work experience and training on my CV and have my foot on the career ladder.  Apprenticeships shouldn’t be seen as something second best to university anymore, if anything they should be considered as a better route due to the incredible opportunities they offer’ – Charlie, Apprentice with Samworth Brothers
