Chesterfield has become the first town in the UK to declare itself an ‘Apprentice Town’, demonstrating its commitment to growing the future and careers of young people alongside business and the economy. But what is Apprentice Town?
Chesterfield Borough Council is leading the Apprentice Town initiative which aims to raise awareness of apprenticeships and promote cooperative working across the education, business and learning community.
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. The Apprentice Town group want to grow individuals’ careers and futures alongside the local businesses and economy to ensure a prosperous future for all.
The Apprentice Town steering group is made up of a number of apprentice providers across Chesterfield and North Derbyshire.
To guide their vision they have a charter to ensure their activity is focused on raising awareness of apprenticeship activities and promoting all aspects of apprenticeship provision.
If you are a local business or skills provider and would be interested in getting involved please contact Emily Williams at Chesterfield Borough Council
