We are really excited to be starting our Insight to Apprenticeships project in Somerset in September 2019 which is proudly supported by the High Sheriff of Somerset.

This programme will serve two schools in the Weston area and four schools in the Bridgwater area. We will work very closely with Bridgwater & Taunton College and Weston College.

In cohorts of 15 students, the programme aims to bring into sharp focus the opportunities provided by apprenticeships. It seeks to improve student self-confidence by developing the student’s understanding of their own personality traits and how these relate to employer requirements. As well as receiving public speaking training and personality profiling, the students will visit a number of high-quality work environments.

Our current partners include EDF, Thatchers, Business Leader Magazine, RBS, the Somerset Chamber of Commerce, Wessex Water, Numatics and Leonardo.
