FROM this week in print and online, The Gazette is taking a look at the world of apprenticeships and what they can bring to modern-day businesses across a huge range of sectors.

With a series of articles, we will be looking at the wide range of fields in which young people can take on apprenticeship roles, how apprenticeships can benefit both businesses and those who take on the roles, and more by gaining insight from employers, colleges, and current and ex-apprentices.

We will also tell the stories of people who have risen through the ranks from apprentices to dynamic, influential roles in their fields.

Businesses looking to appoint apprentices should email to feature your role in these pages.

If you have a story to tell about how an apprenticeship made you what you are today, email us on
