Stars in the making

With 15 apprenticeships created within Bolsover District Council for 16-18 year olds, and over 90 apprenticeships with a wide range of public and community and voluntary sector organisations, this programme was a HUGE success.

Several brave apprentices agreed to step into the limelight and share their stories. View the short film below to hear from them and their supervisors.

Apprentice Programme (About)

The Bolsover Apprenticeship Programme created 75 apprenticeship places employing Bolsover residents between January 2010 and June 2012; targeting young people not in employment, education or training (NEET), and unemployed residents in the most deprived areas of the district.

Working in close collaboration with key partner organisations, Bolsover District Council recruited fifteen 16–18 year old NEETs/potential NEETs for up to 18 months to an ‘in house’ apprenticeship programme.  The programme also created 60 apprenticeship opportunities for 18-24 year olds and people aged 25+ from unemployment ‘hotspot’ wards. This has enabled public and third sector partners to employ an apprentice to assist their workforce in delivering services to local communities.
