Mar 13, 2023 | News

One of the UK’s most significant figures in education has been hearing from businesses in Coventry and Warwickshire about their experiences of apprenticeships.

Susan Acland-Hood, the Permanent Secretary at the Department for Education (DfE), paid a visit to Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber Training (CWCT) to meet firms and apprentices to find out some of the barriers to employment before heading to Coventry College to see its Electric Battery Facility.

A roundtable session was chaired by Corin Crane, chief executive of the Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce, and heard from businesspeople in the property, education, accountancy, and events sectors, as well as from Sally Lucas who runs Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce Training.

It was an opportunity to discuss what works well with apprenticeships, and how they support businesses to grow as well as identify other challenges in the current market.
