Alan Crabbe


New Apprentice, Alan Crabbe started with us on Monday. He is currently completing the Business and Administration Framework whilst working as a Administrative Assistant. “I am looking forward to completing my apprenticeship with Mercia. I enjoy working, earning and learning at the same time. Each day at work is different and hands on, I enjoy learning by performing the job rather than just watching. Everyone has been friendly and helpful for which I am thankful for”.

National Apprenticeship Week 2013

What is National Apprenticeship Week?

National Apprenticeship Week is co-ordinated by the National Apprenticeship Service and is designed to celebrate Apprenticeships and the positive impact they have on individuals and businesses.

Now in its sixth year, National Apprenticeship Week is the time when all eyes are on Apprenticeships and it’s all about raising the profile amongst employers, individuals, teachers, parents and the media.

Everyone with an interest in Apprenticeships across England is encouraged to get involved in the week.

The overarching theme for National Apprenticeship Week 2013 is: Apprenticeships Deliver.

The year’s theme is a key part of the New Era for Apprenticeships. It is about demonstrating how apprenticeships can deliver for both employers and individuals whilst showcasing the quality of apprentices and the huge contribution they make to their employer’s success.

We want to show how apprentices develop as individuals and how proud the country’s employers are of their apprentices.

To take part in Apprenticeship week, Mercia Partnership will be visiting all our current Apprentices to take photographs, hold interviews and write case studies. Keep an eye on our twitter feed for #NAW2013

The theme from the National Apprenticeship Service for the week is as follows:

Monday 11th March – Proud

Tuesday 12th March – Growth

Wednesday 13th March – Choice

Thursday 14th March – Hall of Fame

Friday 15th March – Apprenticeships Deliver
