Leo Docherty MP celebrates National Apprenticeship Week 2020 with local apprentice

This week, 3rd to 9th February, marks National Apprenticeship Week 2020 – an annual week-long celebration of apprenticeships across England and a time to recognise and applaud apprenticeship success stories across the country.

Apprenticeship employers use the opportunity to promote the success of their apprenticeships and highlight the huge benefits to other employers, of all sizes, who are thinking of taking on an apprentice.

Leo Docherty MP was delighted to attend the Hospitality Apprenticeship Showcase in Parliament yesterday, Tuesday 4th February, to meet local apprentice Cameron Talks and hear more about his experience of training and working at the Sarsen Stones Pub in Farnborough.

Cameron was one of over 200 apprentices exhibiting at the showcase. He was recently awarded a ‘Certificate of Outstanding Achievement’ from Marston’s Pubs, owners of the Sarsen Stones, in recognition of how he excelled during his apprenticeship.  

Leo Docherty commented: “I was thrilled to join Cameron and Chrissie of the Sarsen Stones Pub in Farnborough to celebrate National Apprenticeship Week 2020. It’s a fantastic opportunity to celebrate apprentices and the brilliant work being done by employers, like the Sarsen Stones, as well the Further Education sector and schools across the country to promote the huge benefits of apprenticeships. 

“Apprenticeships offer people of all ages and backgrounds a high-quality route into skilled employed with the option to train at every level in a range of exciting professions like aerospace engineering, data science, teaching, law, nursing and fashion.”
