Apprentice Town Vision

Apprentice Town is a partnership that seeks to develop Chesterfield as a leading Apprenticeship Destination.  Chesterfield is a town where young people, parents and businesses think Apprenticeship First.

As members, they will:

  • Raise Awareness of Apprenticeship opportunities, promoting all aspects of apprenticeships provision including traineeships, higher level apprentices and align this with opportunities emerging in the local economy.
  • Work in partnership to increase the number, levels and quality of apprenticeships available that are accessible and achievable by all
  • Deliver high quality apprenticeship training and promote provision that supports future employment prospects of the apprentice and the needs of the business
  • Work with employers to encourage a high commitment to apprenticeships and/or traineeships in their workplaces and think Apprenticeship First with regards to their workforce planning.
  • Promote co-operative working across the education, business and learning community to ensure that their Apprentice Town Vision is realised.
  • Celebrate Apprenticeship success in Chesterfield through ensuring positive stories are shared. This should include the success of the apprentice as well as the positive impact on the business
  • Empower, prepare and encourage young people to attend and participate in any apprenticeship events delivered locally.
  • Ensure the benefits of apprenticeships are at the heart of growth in Chesterfield.
