Celebrating Apprenticeship week
This annual celebration of apprenticeships will bring the whole apprenticeship community together to celebrate the impact of apprenticeships on individuals, employers and the economy.
We fund apprentices across the different areas of our charity. Being an apprentice enables a young person to work alongside our experienced staff, gain job-specific skills, earn a wage, receive holiday pay and get time for study related to their role (usually one day a week).
Apprenticeships are an excellent way of getting a head start in a particular field of work and to enable young people to start working and earning a wage while they learn key skills and gain the qualifications that employers need.
We employ apprentices in several areas of the organisation including catering, painting and decorating, care and customer services.
Megan started working as an Apprentice Receptionist at Sir Josiah Mason Trust in July 2019. She says "I am really enjoying my time here as an apprentice receptionist, working with the staff, and developing my skills. My confidence has really grown. There is always something new to learn, I love meeting the residents and I really look forward to coming into work every day".
