National Apprenticeship Week 2016

18th March 2016

It's National Apprenticeship Week and the Mount Batten Watersports & Activities Centre have their own team of Apprentices.

Each year, the Centre supports young people by offering them an Apprenticeship in either Business Administration or Activity Leadership. By working in partnership with a local training provider, the Centre are able to provide valuable work experience and show apprentices what it's really like to work in a busy and varied environment. 

Sam Waites, Activities Manager says "We've supported apprentices here at the Centre for many years. It's really important for us to be able to provide training and work experience, via a recognised Apprenticeship programme, as a route to possible employment for young people who want to work in the leisure and hospitality industry. We are able to show them the day-in-day-out real life work experiences that are involved in the running of the Centre and as part of the team how they can help and impact too."

Business Administration apprentice Kylie says "Being an apprentice at the Centre is great. Everyone is so lovely and has been so welcoming. I enjoy going to work every day. The atmosphere is always so nice and everyone is so helpful and patient when it comes to helping me and training me with day to day jobs. I already feel more confident in my abilities and I have developed a lot of life skills in the time I have been here already, I feel a lot more prepared for my future and whatever job route I take after this year. I’m love my apprenticeship!"
