Celebrating the successes of apprentices

Council apprentices and their managers are coming together for celebration of their achievements at this year’s Ealing Council Apprentice Graduation and Awards Ceremony.

Taking place online on Thursday, 9 September from 2.30pm to 3.30pm, the event is a way for us thank them for all their contribution and hard work over the last 18 months and recognise how much they have all achieved and grown.

Although all apprentices deserve an award, two of them will be given the following awards:

  • Apprentice significant achievement award
  • Apprentice of the year 2021.

Apprentices will also hear directly from Councillor Bassam Mahfouz, Ealing Council’s cabinet member for decent living outcomes, who said: “We have created over 750 apprenticeship opportunities in Ealing in the last three years, as part of our commitment to ensuring our residents are able to progress to well-paid jobs.

“We are incredibly proud of all our apprentices at Ealing Council, who have immensely contributed to our organisation and wish them lots of luck in future.

“Apprentices bring real benefits to our organisation and borough, not just for job-seekers but for businesses too.”

Why you should consider an apprenticeship

Apprenticeships offer a real job with hands-on experience, a salary and the opportunity to learn while you work.

Your training is fully paid for, which means that, unlike university students, you will have no debts to repay when you finish your course.

An apprenticeship can be the bridge between a start up role and a full time one. It’s an opportunity for you to demonstrate to the employer that you can contribute as a permanent member of staff.
