Apprentice Advisory Panel

Following the success of this panel, we launched an Apprentice Advisory Panel in December 2018 to give our apprentices the opportunity to influence how the scheme is run and have their say on future plans. The panel is made up of apprentices from across the south-east region and represent various trades within the industry. They are at different stages of their apprenticeship, bringing diverse experience and knowledge to the group.

“I enjoyed the advisory panel. It was great to get involved, feel part of the team, have an input into matters and possibly make things even better for future apprentices. I think it’s a good idea to have a meeting like this and a great opportunity for Y Prentis to keep us in the loop with upcoming plans.”

Emily Spruce, Painting and Decorating Apprentice

“It was a really good opportunity to meet other apprentices’ my age and a great opportunity to share our stories and experiences. I think it’s an amazing idea to have an advisory panel so that we have can discuss our concerns as well as the joys of our apprenticeships.”

Ieuan Humphries, Plastering Apprentice

“Being part of the group is an amazing opportunity. The Apprentice Advisory Panel is also an opportunity for Y Prentis to give feedback on any questions that apprentices may have asked them in the past, and it was great to hear the answers to these.”
