With COVID-19 impacting all Colleges and their ability to continue the apprentice training programme it was crucial that a way could be found quickly to ensure our apprentices did not miss out on their academic work.
With a ‘can do spirit’ and working with our provider, West Nottinghamshire College we soon found a solution to support our current apprentices.
We have fully IT equipped a meeting room at our HQ for use as a college classroom where
students via Microsoft teams are able to have interactive lessons with the tutor on a ‘one to one’ or group session.
Assignments are set as normal together with the NVQ level 3 reviews. This has benefited all students to ensure that they do not miss out on study time, thereby maintaining levels of attendance and advancement.
AF Group currently supports over 20 apprentices within the electrical, administration and Fabrication sectors of the business.
