Warwickshire Police welcomes new apprentices as part of National Apprenticeship Week

Warwickshire Police has welcomed three new apprentices to its policing family as National Apprenticeship Week is celebrated up and down the country.

Running from 4 - 8 March, this annual celebration of apprenticeships brings the whole apprenticeship community together to celebrate the benefits of apprenticeships on individuals and employers. This year's theme is 'Blaze a Trail', and Warwickshire Police's latest apprentices will also be hoping to make their mark as they start their employment with the county force.

The Warwickshire Police apprentice project looks to provide a variety of people with experience in the policing sector whilst studying for a professional qualification. It provides them with a wide range of workplace skills and also enables the staff members supporting them to build on their supervisory and mentoring experience.

The newest recruits on the project are Charlotte, HR Assistant Apprentice, Nathan, Level 4 Finance Apprentice and Daniel, Level 3 Finance Apprentice.

Charlotte said: "I applied for this HR Apprenticeship because I have always been interested in law enforcement and business. I would mainly like to gain HR and recruitment experience from this apprenticeship, as this is what I can see myself doing as a career, whilst getting some more in depth knowledge about how similar processes are applied in all business scenarios. I would also love to take this opportunity to find out a lot more about the police and how systems work throughout different departments in the business."

Tania Coppola, Head of People Services at Warwickshire Police, said: "The apprentice scheme is a welcome addition to what Warwickshire Police can offer the public in terms of a variety of opportunities within the police family.  There are a number of business benefits to having an apprenticeship programme within the force.

"Our apprenticeships offer opportunities for a wide range of people to gain experience working for Warwickshire Police, enabling them to work alongside our experienced staff, gain job-specific skills and gain confidence within a working environment whilst receiving time for study, a salary and holiday pay. Our apprentices also benefit from the mutual support of our Apprentice Network, and I am delighted to be welcoming Charlotte, Daniel and Nathan to both the organisation and the Network. We certainly benefit from the fresh approach and positive attitude our apprentices bring".

To celebrate the week, Warwickshire Police's apprentices will be taking to social media channels to tell the public how they have blazed a trail and aspire, learn and benefit through the apprenticeship scheme.
