Dedicated trainers and staff at Themis – the Apprenticeship training arm of at Burnley College – organised and led a packed programme of events at Burnley College, community venues and schools across the region to help spread the word about the great opportunities available during National Apprenticeship Week 2019.  

Highlights of the week included Carpentry and Joinery Apprentices building an external library for the grounds of Simonstone Primary School and a day of activities at Burnley Boys and Girls' Club, for Apprentices, which included tree pruning, dry stone walling, litter picking, painting a mural (with paint provided by Community RePaint) and learning Makaton sign language, among other fun activities.

Themis representatives also visited Todmorden High School, Mount Carmel, Ribblesdale High School, Park High School and Unity College to talk to pupils about the opportunities for them to launch their careers via the Apprenticeship route.

Throughout the week, students at College were also able to access a variety of informative workshops and information sessions on progression routes available to them via Higher and Degree Apprenticeships, as well as picking up the skills demanded by Employers when interviewing and considering applicants for posts.
