Adviza recognised for providing apprenticeship opportunities
5th Mar 2015
Adviza has been recognised for providing apprenticeship opportunities for young people in Bracknell. Key Training has awarded a commemorative plaque to the charity in recognition of the training and work opportunities Adviza has given to local young people.
Working in partnership with Key Training, Adviza has created an apprentice academy at its Support Centre in Bracknell. Seven business administration apprentices, ranging in age from 16 to 19, started with Adviza in October 2014. During their 18 month apprenticeship the apprentices will work in rotation across all departments, giving them experience in a range of functions including marketing, human resources, and the call centre. They will also complete an NVQ Level 3 in Business Administration.
Katharine Horler, Adviza’s Chief Executive, said: “We are delighted to have established an apprentice academy as this gives us the opportunity to provide high quality training to seven young people. Our focus is on giving young people the best start in their working lives and we are pleased to be able to do it in such as practical way with our apprenticeships.”
Apprentice Alyshia Woodley, 19 said: “I am really enjoying being part of a rotation, going round all the different departments in the office, as this allows me to have an understanding of each job role.”
There will be an opportunity to meet our apprentices at our Apprenticeship Event in Bracknell during National Apprenticeship Week (9th-13th March). On Wednesday 11th March, from 9.30 to 4pm, they will be on a stand in Princess Square giving first-hand information about what it’s like doing an apprenticeship, and at the Elevate hub in Charles Square, 16-24 year olds can find out about local apprenticeship opportunities and get advice on how to apply for them from our qualified careers advisers.
