A-Team apprenticeship scheme hits the road this Easter

Expert advice on exciting careers is available through an award-winning apprenticeship programme which is hitting the road this Easter.

Cheshire East Council’s A-Team will be visiting Congleton, Crewe, Macclesfield, Nantwich and Wilmslow next month as part of a series of roadshows.

And young people will get the chance to meet those whose careers have been boosted by the innovative scheme – which is being held up as a classic example of how to run an apprenticeship programme.

A number of A-Team apprentices will be on hand to share real life experiences with visitors, who might just find that an apprenticeship with Cheshire East Council is the way forward for them.

There will also be opportunities for businesses to come along and get advice on what makes a good apprenticeship scheme and how they can improve theirs.

Councillor Peter Mason, Cabinet member with responsibility for procurement and shared services, said: “This a fantastic opportunity for people who might be pondering a change in direction to find out more about what Cheshire East Council’s A-Team can do for them.

“We have a number of success stories here at Cheshire East and apprentices will be present at these roadshows to talk about how the scheme has helped to get them on the road to a rewarding career.

“Cheshire East is already acting in a consultancy role to other councils to improve apprenticeships and share knowledge of what makes a successful scheme. At these roadshows, people will be able to find out exactly why that is.

“Our overarching philosophy is ‘inspiring apprenticeships’ and our goal is to keep growing our team of inspirational people and to improve the prospects for people in Cheshire East.”

The A-Team road shows are taking place between 10am and 2pm at the following locations:

· Wednesday, April 4th – Macclesfield (Market Place)

· Thursday, April 5th – Nantwich (Market Square)

· Wednesday, April 11th – Wilmslow (Sainsbury’s car park)

· Thursday, April 12th – Congleton (town centre pedestrian area)

· Friday, April 13th – Crewe (Market Square)

Visitors will find out about the Council’s current apprenticeships in areas such as business and administration, leisure, finance, marketing, customer services, ICT and health and social care to name a few.
