National Apprenticeship Week
15th February 2023
From the 6th – 10th February 2023, it was National Apprenticeship Week and Go Green wanted to highlight how apprenticeships can help individuals develop the skills and knowledge required for a rewarding career.
The week gave us a chance to celebrate our in-house apprentices, and the contribution they make to our businesses. Currently we have 3 Business Administration apprentices and 1 Customer Service apprentice, whilst still in the early stages of their journey with us, we look forward to seeing how they develop their skills over their placement period with us.
During the week, we spent some core time with our apprentices to see how they were finding their experience at Go Green so far, and how they were striking the work / college balance. As a treat, we personalised some mugs (with their drink of choice) and filled it with snacks and notes from their team members who wanted to show their appreciation.
“I have received a lot of support on all my work from people at Go Green, in my department and the other apprentices, and have progressed so much in my knowledge of the company.“
Macey, Customer Service Apprentice
“I would recommend anyone that is thinking of getting into business admin or any apprenticeship that Go Green offer to do so.”
Aidan, Business Admin Apprentice
In January, we were proud to accommodate our first-ever T-Level Student into the business, different from that of an apprentice, T-Level students spend 20% of their time in work and 80% in college; currently our student is with us every Monday for the period of two years. During his time with us, he will find out how the business operates, the skills needed to work in a professional environment, and the departments required to make up a successful business.
Go Green are also lucky to presently have two university students who have placements within our Sustainability team. Their main focus during their time with us, is to look at Project GROWW Green, and how we can develop a piece of old quarry land which Go Green plans to transform to improve biodiversity and support community engagement.
