Learn about what it's like to be an apprentice

The Plymouth Apprenticeship Network is an association of Plymouth based employers and training provider and the 1000 club.  The Network has established a group of apprentices and ex-apprentices from across all sectors to take up the role of ambassador and untake some work in schools to promote apprenticeships and share their own experiences.

If you would like to arrange for one of the Apprenticeship Ambassadors to visit your school, contact Ken Holder at Plymouth City Council - ken.holder@plymouth.gov.uk or visit
