This week, employers employees, and of course apprentices across England and Scotland will come together to shout about the value of apprentices to the UK workplace.
The week celebrates the work of apprentices across sectors including Finance, Engineering, Retail and IT – and if you’re one of the apprentices that are in placements in theatres, galleries and many other cultural organisations through the Creative Employment Programme, we want to hear from you!
The Creative Society and Creative and Cultural Skills would love to see what you’ve been up to. Let us know what a day in the life of an apprentice is like by uploading a picture of yourself at work, a little story behind it and the hashtag #CreativeEmployment to @CCSkills. If you’ve got a great project on the go that you want to share, take a picture and tweet @CCSkills using the hashtags #Madebyapprentices or #CreativeEmployment
Employers can get in on the act too. Let us know why having an apprentice has been great for you – tweet your stories to @CCSkills #NAW2014 – Creative and Cultural Skills will retweet the best. You can also download an employer toolkit from the website which includes tips on making the most of NAW2014.
If you’re not on Twitter, you don’t have to miss out. Get involved by posting your stories to the Creative and Cultural Skills Facebook page.
