Monday 7 February 2022 marked the beginning of National Apprenticeship Week 2022.
The weeklong celebration brings together businesses and apprentices across the country and shines a light on the positive impact that apprenticeships make to individuals, businesses, and the wider economy.
Epping Forest District Council (EFDC) has over exceeded the national apprenticeship target for 3 years running; creating a skilled workforce to help improve council services and processes.
Day in the life
EFDC apprentices have created a short video illustrating what they get up to on a day-to-day basis.
Experiences are always learning opportunities
Ellie Stone, HR Support Officer, is studying for a Level 3 HR Support qualification.
This apprenticeship looks at handling day-to-day queries and providing human resources advice on anything from recruitment to retirement. Ellie is also completing a maths qualification through this apprenticeship.
The opportunity has been amazing for Ellie, she said:
It has taught me so much in terms of what actually goes on within the HR environment. I feel incredibly lucky to be working within the People Team; it has been such a great experience being surrounded by such a great team. I have been able to expand my skills so much in the past 6 months I’ve been here. I’m really enjoying it. It’s a new experience and experiences are always learning opportunities.
