Welcome back to Embracing Future Potential’s news bulletin. This week we have plenty of updates from our own website network, with exciting launches and new opportunities.
If you are new here, we are Embracing Future Potential, a network of 5 websites each dedicated to providing jobs, support and resources to those who face barriers to employment. Our sites were created as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic; we recognised that those least supported in society were falling through the cracks, and were feeling the greatest effects of the economic and employment crisis. We also support employers to understand and connect with a wide variety of job seekers.
It has been a busy few weeks here at Embracing Future Potential. We are so happy to welcome even more employers to our network, and publish more jobs on our jobs boards. As well as, publishing more useful content for job seekers, employers, parents, teachers, training providers and more.
National Apprenticeship Week 2021
Last week, Employing an Apprentice celebrated National Apprenticeship Week along with the rest of the UK. They released a series of articles all about STEM apprenticeships with different industry experts. There were two science-based articles, one with CSR Scientific Training and the other with the Royal Society of Chemistry, and one Technology article with Framestore.
As well as the STEM series, they also launched a brand-new feature on the Employing an Apprentice website, the Early Careers Calendar! This calendar is a great way to keep up to date with all awareness months and early careers events.
