Find out more here and don’t forget to use #ApprenticeTown, #LoveChesterfield, #NAW2024 and tag us in so we can engage with your content. Where possible, please link back to the dedicated Apprentice Town webpages which feature lots of helpful guidance: www.chesterfield.co.uk/apprenticeships/.

Create a unique offer for Chesterfield Champions
Destination Chesterfield encourages Chesterfield Champions to shop and trade locally as much as possible, in order to support the local economy.
To submit an offer for fellow Chesterfield Champions, please email Melissa with the following:
- An image

Help put Chesterfield on the map this summer
Chesterfield has a fabulous line-up of events and activities for families to experience this summer. We need your help to shout about what’s happening across our town.
The Summer in Chesterfield campaign was seen a total of 1.6 million times in 2023. We want Summer in Chesterfield 2024 to be even bigger and better. Fancy getting involved? Email firstname.lastname@example.org for a chat.
We’re busy planning the marketing activity for this campaign but keep an eye on this page for opportunities.
