Leading Employers from Burnley and the surrounding areas joined us at Burnley College last night, to speak to some of our students about Degree Apprenticeship, and what it takes to become a #Futureboss.
The Employers who joined our guest panel, were:
Leon Calverley – Door 4
Sam Keenan - +24
Steve Wilkinson – MAS
Ben Blackburn – Blackburn Distributions
Mike Ashforth – PP Direct
Alyson Andrew – Burnley College
The evening was hosted by Project Digital's Chief Education Officer, Ben Whitaker; who has led previous sessions for the candidates focused around CV writing tips, interview skills and providing advice on how to be successful in the world of work.
Our candidates are now over half way through the 11 week programme designed to prepare students for a Degree Apprenticeship and successful career. After the Employer panel, the students were encouraged to ask the Employers questions which would help them to stand out from the crowd and succeed within their Apprenticeships.
