A series of online events gave Barking and Dagenham College students the chance to learn all about apprenticeships.

The virtual webinars and sessions with tutors, employers and current apprentices were run during National Apprenticeship Week.

They included live question and answer sessions with employers in the area, including Newham Council, the McLaren Group and Met Police.

The college’s head of apprenticeships Richard Roberts said: “We had live webinars every day and the interactive element enabled participants to fully understand the value and benefits of apprenticeships and our offer at the college.

“We included sessions focussing on Higher Level apprenticeships and why these are growing in popularity due to their recognition in industry and traineeships, which are a stepping stone into apprenticeships, with new courses at the college starting in March."
