Christeyns launches student insight programme ahead of National Apprenticeship Week

This week is National Apprenticeship Week, now in its 14th year. Follow all events and news about National Apprenticeship Week 2021 by following #NAW2021 and #BuildTheFuture

Christeyns fully supports National Apprenticeship Week and has been working with local schools and running a successful apprenticeship scheme for many years.

Following continued interest from their local educational institutions, the firm has this week introduced ‘The Christeyns Experience’ that will provide the next generation with both online and hands-on experience. Representatives from schools, colleges and educational institutions were invited to an online Breakfast Briefing to learn more about what the Christeyns Experience will be able to offer.

The majority of the work experience activities offered by “The Christeyns Experience” can be delivered remotely, so for now as an alternative to an onsite tour there will be virtual tours, online interview practice, online careers carousel meetings, and project work sessions will also be delivered remotely.  Onsite work experience will be available in the future when Government policy allows.

“Apprenticeships are at the heart of our recruitment strategy at Christeyns and we are committed to developing the region’s future talent,” states apprentice scheme facilitator Neville Kildunne.   “The Christeyns Experience” is an additional way to support young people, tailored to suit students aged between 13-18.”

The Christeyns Apprenticeship programme is specifically designed to build understanding and gain real experience into how a manufacturing business operates.  The idea is to help prepare the next generation with key skills and knowledge for employment, along with insight into how a business operates, as well as an experience to remember.

Christeyns is also supporting the Governments Kickstart Scheme and will be providing three 18-24 year olds with valuable work experience, training and mentoring within the manufacturing areas of the business. This will run alongside its ongoing apprenticeship programme.

“Manufacturing is not always the first choice for young people, but with the support of National Apprenticeship Week, and now our new Christeyns Experience Scheme, we hope to change perceptions.

“Providing young people with the right skills and opportunities is vital for the future prosperity of both Christeyns and the industry,” concludes Kildunne.
