So far we have helped over 1000 apprentices who have lost work placements and learning opportunities as a direct result of Covid-19 find new employment. We have thousands of apprentices, employers, manufacturers and lecturers interacting on social media and the apprentice 121 website everyday.
We have people donating equipment in to help apprentices every single day. From hand tools to test sets. So far putting over 250 safe isolation kits into apprentices hands and now over 20 multi function test instruments totally free of charge.
We are now also partnership members of the IET!
The group was founded by Mark Allison and has wide ranging support from the EGTE, NAPIT, TIS, Super Rod and many individuals.
Within the Linkedin Group we have Gary Hayers, Joe Robinson and Craig O'Neill on hand to help with the learning and training sector.
We have a number of employers offering advice and guidance along with trying to help find new opportunities.
We have articles going into industry magazines over the coming weeks and are ready to help as much as required.
If you are an apprentice get in touch for help, equally tell your success stories to inspire and encourage all within the apprenticeship system.
This is a collective of industry people who want to help, for free and without any expectation of reward. We want to help apprentices qualify and build a career.
At the moment we believe a void is present between colleges, schools and employers. We want to help firstly with those effected by Covid19 and ultimately to encourage people into apprenticeship placements for the long term
