At the beginning of March, Karis, an Academy team member who has completed one Apprenticeship and is undertaking her second, spoke at the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Apprenticeships, about how beneficial completing an Apprenticeship had been for both her confidence and career.

The purpose of the APPG is to provide a forum for parliamentarians and employers to discuss how to promote the role of high quality Apprenticeships, how to ensure that Apprenticeships serve as a pathway to a career and how the Apprenticeship model can meet the changing skill demands from businesses.

‘If you had told me when I began my first Apprenticeship that I would be talking to MPs at the Houses of Parliament, I would never have believed you,’ says Karis’, ‘But that shows how much an Apprenticeship can change you life!’
