Build the Future

National Apprenticeship Week 2022

This week marks the 15th annual week-long celebration of apprenticeships for National Apprenticeship Week. Our Apprentice ambassadors are sharing their stories and achievements all week and letting you know their involvement in providing first-line support to the King’s community.

This year’s theme is ‘Build the Future’, so we’ll also be focusing on how the Service Centre supports the local community by building future careers, supporting job creation and the helping the economy in Cornwall. Since opening in 2015, King’s Service Centre has been recruiting from the local area, developing staff and delivering work experience, graduate and apprenticeship opportunities.

This investment in the next generation has ensured the Service Centre is never short of excellent talent. Thirty-two apprentices have passed through its doors, with over half staying on and continuing their careers with King’s.

At King’s Service Centre we provide the opportunity for people in Cornwall to become skilled IT professionals, through our apprenticeship programme. Gareth Wright, Managing Director of King’s Service Centre said

“As a Cornishman myself, I have been thrilled to be able to bring these fantastic job opportunities to the county, as well as high quality vocational training through our introduction of apprenticeships.”

The aim of this apprenticeship programme is to build long-term talent – benefitting the organisation and the apprentices alike. John Butterworth, Director of the Office of the CIO for King’s College London said

“One of my responsibilities is to oversee IT’s approach to developing talent. Since we opened our Cornwall centre we have been delighted to see apprentices join us and make a strong contribution to the work of King’s. At the same time building their skills and a really good platform for long-term career success.”
