We’ve teamed up with Apprenticeships.gov.uk to celebrate the work apprentices do up and down the country and are inviting all apprentices to share their story.
At Asda our apprenticeship scheme is open to colleagues over the age of 16. It’s a great way to develop new skills in a range of different areas – and gain a qualification at the same time.
Since the programme began in June 2011 more than 4300 people have taken part in the apprenticeship scheme, achieving a nationally recognised qualificiation at level 2 or 3 – including Hannah Pritchard from Bridgend Superstore who was the first Asda apprentice to complete a full apprenticeship in Wales. Read Hannah’s story here.
The programme is available to existing colleagues aged from 16 upwards in Service, George, Ambient, Fresh, Bakery, General Merchandise, Distribution, Home Shopping and Admin roles.
You can find out more about apprenticeships across the UK and how people are getting involved with the Apprenticeships Map on Pinterest. Read the stories of other apprentices across the country and share your story too! You can find out more at apprenticeships.gov.uk.
