The Swindon-based academy, 3aaa, held its first networking event on Thursday December 15.
The academy works with young people age 16-24 to offer them “life changing” opportunities with local employers. It provides higher level apprenticeships in IT, Digital Marketing, Accountancy and Business and all of its Apprenticeship programmes are government funded and therefore are at no cost to the apprentice or employer.
Attending the event were a number of existing apprentices on the programme with their employers as well as a number of businesses from in and around the local area. According to 3aaa, it was a “massive success” and the academy now has plans to run the event on a quarterly basis.
Eleanor Box, recruitment executive for 3aaa, said, “The main aim of this event was to help employers in the local community to understand more about apprenticeships and the levy which is coming into effect April 2017. Myself and the team are very pleased with how it all went and are hoping to hold our next event for National Apprenticeship Week and will be celebrating the success of all those who have achieved their certificates this year.”
She added, “We’d like to thank everyone who attended and we hope to see them again at the next event.”
Over the past few years, the company claims it has established and developed “very strong working relationships” with many leading employers throughout the City and County as well as with the wider local community, the City, County and Borough Councils.
