Hovertravel promotes National Apprenticeship Week 2020
Hovertravel has been promoting the benefits of apprenticeships to school children as part of Shaping Portsmouth’s highly successful initiative to showcase the apprenticeship experience to local schools during National Apprenticeship Week.
Loretta Lale, Head of Commercial at Hovertravel, explains: “Our commercial team has three apprentices and we sent one of them, Dean, to join in with Shaping Portsmouth’s Apprenticeship Bus tour of senior schools in Portsmouth. The children at each of the schools get real and valuable time with current apprentices who are able to explain all the elements of their jobs, opportunities and experiences. Feedback from the schools has shown that the students appreciate the opportunity to speak to those who are currently undergoing an apprenticeship and studying at different levels.”
In its third year, the Apprenticeship Bus tour will visit 12 schools over two days this week, thanks to the ongoing support of Stagecoach which has been involved since 2018. National Apprenticeship Week 2020 takes place 3 to 9 February 2020. This annual celebration of apprenticeships brings the whole apprenticeship community together to celebrate the impact of apprenticeships on individuals, employers and the economy.
