National Apprenticeship Week

Young people looking for routes into employment are being encouraged to take a look at the wide range of opportunities available at Warwick District Council during National Apprenticeship Week.

Now in its fifth year the Council’s in-house scheme has supported the employment of 23 apprentices across a number of areas. Ten of the trainees have gone on to secure permanent employment with the Council in a variety of roles including Assistant Accountant, Learning and Engagement Officer, Project Officer, Data Analyst and Licensing Support Officer, with others progressing towards degrees and career graded managerial roles.

The Council recruits a number of apprentices, each year at Intermediate (GCSE equivalent), Advanced (A Level equivalent), Higher (Foundation degree and above) levels, with recruits being given the chance to experience a range of hands-on, technical and specialist roles whilst gaining a recognised qualification.

National Apprenticeship Week 6 to 12 February brings together businesses and apprentices across the country to shine a light on the positive impact that apprenticeships make to individuals, businesses and the wider economy.

The Council currently has two apprenticeship roles available in Digital Marketing and Project Management. Further details for applicants are on the Warwick District Council website
