NLTG Apprentices Alisha Clarkson (pictured right) and Crystal Elwell (pictured left) recently attended a special Apprenticeship event in London as part of National Apprenticeship Week.

The informal lunch reception for apprentices was held on Thu 9th March 2017 and hosted by the Minister of State for Apprenticeships & Skills, Robert Halfon MP.

Crystal and Alisha were two of only five Lancashire apprentices to attend the lunch reception, which saw a total of 170 apprentices and 40 employers from across England visit the House of Commons in the ‘Apprentices take over the Commons’ event.

Commented Alisha, “Visiting the House of Commons was a fantastic experience.  It allowed us to meet many other apprentices from different areas of the country, all who have succeeded in their Apprenticeships.  The event gave us the opportunity to share our stories and talk about our achievements, and to also meet the Minister of State for Apprenticeships.  It really was amazing to see how many people have achieved their goals through Apprenticeships and I hope this message is reaching young people looking to progress in their career, as this is what we at NLTG are here to help with.”

In addition to Minister Robert Halfon, Nus Ghani MP and Joe Billington (National Apprenticeship Service) also addressed the apprentices and employers.
