The Apprentice Roadshow & Graduation Ceremony 2015

The Apprentice Ambassadors hosted the first-ever Apprentice Roadshow and Graduation Ceremony, which featured ice breaker games, workshops, inspirational speakers and training sessions. 

The apprentices heard about how to use Facebook and Twitter to find work as well as hearing stories from inspirational speakers.

There are apprentices working across a range of the 800 services the council provides, from the city’s famous Royal Pavilion & Museums, health and social care, schools and much more. 

Kelly Butler, Apprentice Ambassador and Graduate, described the icebreakers as her "favourite part of the day, as it got everyone chatting to each other and it was a fun exercise to do."  

The apprentices also had the opportunity to network with each other and have said they will agree to meet up again. 

Rachel Madison, Apprentice Ambassador and Graduate, said: "Our speakers Corinna Allen and Gary Peters really made the day special by sharing their inspiration stories, and showing the apprentices that they can achieve anything if they put their heart into it." 

Guest speaker Gary Peters, Chief Executive of Love Local Jobs, said: "There are many apprentices out there doing a great job and educating themselves while working at the same time. 

"I don't know if there is a network where they can swap information and stories to help one another, so events like this are absolutely critical and need to be applauded on that."

Chief Executive, Penny Thompson, said: “I think it is really good for apprentices to come in contact with one another and it is great for managers to get appreciation for the work they have done with apprentices. A bit of celebration is a very good thing."
