Apprenticeship Week

Learning all about apprenticeships!

Learners at CTK Emmanuel were treated to our contributions towards the National Apprenticeship Week this week, including talks and presentations by speakers from a variety of different areas and professions. As a sixth form, it is our privilege to run events such as these that highlight other avenues learners can progress onto, as informing learners on the alternative choices they have after studying at CTK is important to nurturing their development. 

CTK Alumnus, Ms. Adomaityte, held a great talk entitled, ‘Her Journey as an Apprentice’ and was all about her journey from a CTK learner, to studying an apprenticeship and eventually culminating in her current position as a Data Analyst at HDR. The talk was inspiring to the learners and concentrated on the benefits of studying an apprenticeship.  

Another great talk was held remotely by Tom Culley (British Telecom & Co-Chair at London Apprenticeship Ambassador Network) who gave an educating presentation on what employers would look for in a prospective apprentice. This talk was invaluable as it allowed learners to gain a useful insight into what desirable characteristics potential employers would be looking for. 

The week has been full of amazing talks, like the two mentioned above, and we would like to take this moment to wholeheartedly thank all the speakers who generously donated their time to further educate us with their fascinating presentations. 

Business Learners Run Successful Events

Charitable acts by our Business learners

Business students at CTK Emmanuel successfully ran some amazing events for some fantastic charities recently. The events consisted of both a hot chocolate stand and a tuck shop, with the money being split between the two charities chosen by the learners: Child Bereavement UK (a charity around helping those dealing with the loss of a child) and the Rainbow Trust (a charity providing support to families dealing with terminally ill members). 

The events were a great success, with queues forming in the reception area to buy both the sweets and hot chocolate. Staff members also got involved in the purchasing, with one staff member stating, “It’s really nice to see that the learners care deeply about these issues. Just now I was speaking to the learners about these charities, and they are very knowledgeable on the subject, I can’t wait to see what Social Action they organise next!” 

Social Action is extremely important to us all within the CTK community, and we are looking forward to the future where we have many more events planned for great causes. An example of this is the upcoming Valentine’s Day Lolly Sale, where learners in the chaplaincy are selling lollies with the proceeds going towards the Young Minds charity, a charity which ensures people are receiving the correct mental health support that they require.
