The Liverpool City Region (LCR) Apprentice Ambassadors Network is made up of 26 local apprentices.
The network has been established by the LCR Apprenticeship Hub as a way of raising awareness of and participation of young people and employers in Apprenticeships across the region.
The Apprentice Ambassadors can be booked to visit schools and speak to pupils about their personal experience of apprenticeships. They can also be booked to attend relevant events across the region.
The 26 apprentices are working in a variety of industries, and are at different stages of their training. Between them, they offer a broad spectrum of experience and advice, ranging from how to get onto an apprenticeship, to what’s involved and tips for success.
