Apprenticeships provide great opportunity
The Commissioner met with Jack, who is currently completing his level 3 business administration apprenticeship whilst working in the Vehicle Maintenance department, based at police headquarters in Hutton.
They talked about Jack’s day to day work and his studying, whilst a member of Jack’s team highlighted the impact that he had made whilst working within the department.
This came at the end of National Apprenticeship Week 2019.
“It was good to talk to the Commissioner about the work I am doing as part of my apprenticeship.
“I think that the fact I am able to start my career, earn money and make a difference whilst I gain new skills is a really good opportunity.”
The Commissioner said:
“Apprenticeships provide a great opportunity for those who want to take an alternative path into policing, and it has been really good to hear first-hand Jack’s experience during his time with the force so far.
“It’s great to hear how Jack is learning key skills which will benefit his long term career, whilst making a positive impact now to the work that Lancashire police do to keep people safe.
“As well as supporting apprenticeships in Constabulary and my office wherever possible, my Social Value policy, which outlines our approach to backing Lancashire when spending money by ensuring as much value remains in the county, encouraging the creation of apprenticeships and recognising the benefit they bring across our communities.”
