What better way to start the year... than with the launch of an exciting new video project!
In the middle of last year we started working with British youth charity Rathbone Training and social enterprise GetMyFirstJob on a number of projects focusing on apprenticeships.
After Becs' stint on BBC One's The Apprentice, it's been fascinating to find out more about the growing apprenticeship opportunities that exist in the UK and how brilliant they are!
Taking along a mini microphone, a clip-board and the wonderful camera skills of Ailsa Bee Photography, Becs hit the streets of Manchester city centre to ask the general public what they think about apprenticeships.
Take a look at the video!
Here's some more info from the press release!
"Ex-BBC ‘The Apprentice” contestant takes to the streets to ask people what they know about apprenticeships
There has always been a stigma attached to apprenticeships, but with advanced and degree apprenticeships in more industries than every before, that stigma is no longer true. Apprenticeships are for anyone in many industries. Rebecca Jeffery, a candidate from the BBC Apprentice Series in 2016, took to the streets of Manchester to ask people what they know about apprenticeships.
Together, GetMyFirstJob and Rathbone Training want to challenge the misconceptions attached to apprenticeships and with the help of Rebecca Jeffery have created a Vox-Pop video to see what people’s views and knowledge is up to date, with mixed results.
James Bridgman, Marketing Director at GetMyFirstJob said “It was great to work with Rebecca again to create a video that will help inform people about apprenticeships and promote some great opportunities with our partner Rathbone Training.”
What a fab project!
