Active Fusion to celebrate the success of its apprentices
Active Fusion will once again highlight the success of its apprentices during the National Apprenticeship Week’s ‘Look Beyond’ campaign.
Coordinated by the National Apprenticeship Service, the ‘Look Beyond’ themed week will celebrate the diversity and value that apprenticeships bring to employers, apprentices and communities across the country.
National Apprenticeship Week is a flagship moment in the calendar year for supporters and ambassadors of apprenticeships, uniting them and delivering consistent messages with strong collective impact.
Active Fusion, alongside businesses and organisations all over the UK, will take the time to recognise and applaud its apprentice’s success stories, extending the message to communities and audiences that are less familiar with the value and return on investment they bring.
Plenty of Active Fusion’s current and former apprentices go back to their respective schools to tell their progression stories, attracting the next generation of apprentices, so they too can fire up their future career.
Keith Smith, Director at the Apprenticeships Group, ESFA said: “With National Apprenticeship Week now going into its thirteenth year, everyone involved in it must ‘Look Beyond’ to ensure that we reach all corners and communities with this important message.
“I would like the many, many apprenticeship supporters – from ambassadors and apprentices to training providers and top employers – to get involved and start planning how they can help celebrate apprenticeships, during National Apprenticeship Week 2020.”
A survey conducted by AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) in 2018 found that employers favour relevant apprenticeships or experience over university degrees.
A survey of 1,000 decision makers found 49 per cent prefer to see experience from a relevant apprenticeship or previous position on a candidate’s CV.
Active Fusion prides itself on its apprenticeship programme, taking on cohort after cohort to give young people the best possible experience in the working world.
The programme provides young people with the experience, confidence and skills needed to progress into a career in coaching, teaching or in the sports and leisure industry.
Many of Active Fusion’s former apprentices have gone on to achieve success in their career paths, most notably James and Zoe, who have both found careers in school sports thanks to the apprenticeship programme on offer.
If you have a passion for sport and would like to kickstart a career in sports coaching, learning hands on skills along the way, we’d love to hear from you.
