APPRENTICES had reason to smile at Warwickshire College Group’s apprenticeship graduation ceremony, held at Old Shire Hall in Warwick.
They celebrated completing a range of apprenticeships from engineering and horticulture to farriery and business administration at companies large and small, local and national.
Group principal Angela Joyce said: “Apprenticeships are one of the most established ways of bringing new talent into the workforce – and one of the ways our region can remain competitively skilled in the future. We absolutely believe apprenticeships are great for businesses and individuals alike.
“By choosing an apprenticeship, you not only gain the vital academic grounding in your chosen sector, but the experience of putting what you have learned into practice.
“At WCG we have made a strong commitment to apprenticeships which are proving to be an excellent way of developing the skills and behaviours that businesses require. By working with employers directly, we have created programmes that are responsive to their specific work-readiness needs. Congratulations to all of the apprentices on achieving their apprenticeships – we wish them all the very best for the future and continued success in their careers.”
