Accrington and Rossendale College is celebrating National Apprenticeships Week to raise the awareness of apprenticeships within the local area.
The national event, which is now in its eighth year, is taking place this week and aims to raise the profile of apprenticeships amongst employers, individuals, teachers, parents and the media.
A busy week of activities, awards and masterclasses have been scheduled to showcase the talents apprentices possess with job swaps, themed evenings and bespoke classes all set to take place.
Higher Apprenticeship learners kickstarted the week with an awards ceremony to celebrate the success of every learner passing the course.
Student Leeann Malik picked up two awards, which included the Higher Achiever Award, and the Students Student Award.
She said: “The support from everyone at AccRoss has been second to none. I am extremely proud to have been awarded both these awards and would like to thank my tutors and my fellow students for a great experience.”
Apprentices from the college’s construction department will be taking part in a ‘swap your trade’ masterclass, where students will swap their trade to take up a new one.
Hospitality and Catering apprentices will also be hosting a special Lancashire Tapas-themed Evening in conjunction with Moorhouses Brewery.
The event has been planned, organised and catered for by hospitality and catering apprentices.
