Sasha Wallbank one of our Apprentice ambassadors who is currently in Yr 2 of her apprenticeship with JTL and works at Progress Housing Group attended a Yr 8 careers event at QEGS in Blackburn on 3rd June 2017.
The aim of the event was for students to speak to employers from 6 sectors to get a flavour of the sector. The students were able to ask direct questions about the employers own career pathway in this sector.
Paul Taylor Head of Careers at QEGS said that Sasha was great and they would like her back at similar events anytime. He loved the way she turned up in her overalls, how she interacted with the pupils, and commented on how confident and lively she was, which is a brilliant endorsement for the Lancashire Ambassador network.
Sasha answered questions about how apprenticeships work in general and how she has found her apprenticeship so far. Sasha was shocked how little students knew about apprenticeships and glad she was able to give them an insight.
