Canterbury College Apprentices Celebrated Across the City
Canterbury College Apprentices employed by The Chair in Canterbury stage a Hair Show at the end of their training
Two groups of Canterbury College Apprenticeship students have celebrated their achievements this month at special presentations arranged by their employers.
Apprentices from the NHS were invited to receive certificates from Stuart Bain, Chief Executive of the East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust. The group, who are based at three hospitals run by the Trust, completed an Apprenticeship in Business Administration at either Level 2 or 3 and attended workshops at the New Dover Road campus of Canterbury College every three weeks as well as being regularly assessed in the workplace.
Also, a group of hairdressing apprentices employed by The Chair in Canterbury staged a successful Hair Show to mark the end of their training. The Apprentices trained with the salon and Canterbury College staff. The Hair Show required the students to create a theme, source models and come up with hair designs, clothing and make-up as part of a final employer assessment.
Chrissy Glebioska, Work Based Training Advisor at Canterbury College, said: “It was an absolute pleasure to manage both groups of students who were always motivated and committed to their training’
Apprenticeships give young people the chance to combine their learning by getting practical experience in the workplace and gaining a nationally recognised qualification at College.
In recent years, Canterbury College has seen an increase in the number of students enrolling on Apprenticeship courses with more than 300 joining this academic year. There has been a noticeable increase in A Level students deciding to take up an Apprenticeship in Business and Accounting rather than going to university.
