Apprentices continue to support Engineering and Manufacturing

Apprentices continue to support Engineering and Manufacturing

Apprentices in the North Yorkshire area have been playing a key role in the COVID-19 pandemic, and they will be crucial to the productivity of the UK and the country's recovery. Employers have been adapting their production to manufacture PPE visors, as well as ventilator components during the crisis. 

Claire Gavaghan, Chief Executive Officer said 'we moved to remote delivery in mid-March, before the Government lockdown, to keep learners and staff safe. We went from a standing start learning and adapting as we went. It was not easy but it was essential. We knew we could not let apprentices be forgotten in the midst of a national crisis. They are crucial to the productivity of the UK and the country's recovery. Not one apprentice has been placed on a break in learning, all of them are still in-learning and are making progress towards achievement. Employers and apprentices are happy with the continued training.'
