The Apprentice – Making Life Work
Produced and directed by Michael Maloney.
The objective of this production is to encourage young people to seek out career opportunities afforded by apprenticeships. A common myth is that Britain is no longer a major manufacturing nation. But the reality is that, despite a considerable surviving industrial base, apprenticeships have declined and have been systematically undervalued. Home grown smaller enterprises are overshadowed by the spectre of globalism. Educational policies have favoured university qualifications at the expense of vocational expertise gained by a “hands on”experience in the real workplace. An apprentice uk essay writing system has obvious advantages, and provides a constant supply of skilled and motivated young people into the workplace. Apprenticeships are vital for the future prosperity of Britain – both socially and economically.
- “Apprentices are the lifeblood, the way forward.” Alan Staley, award-winning employer.
- “I’m learning more about myself and effectively becoming a new person.” Alison Sheffield, a former apprentice who now passes her skills on to others.
- “The pursuit of a craft is a marvellous way for somebody to realise their true potential as a human being.” Prince Charles.
- “The reward is in what you do.” Griff Rhys-Jones, President of Civic Voice.
