Hackney Apprenticeship Network Launch

Join the Mayor of Hackney, Philip Glanville, during National Apprenticeship Week for Afternoon Tea at the launch of our new initiative the Hackney Apprenticeship Network.

If you are a Hackney based organisation who already employs apprentices or if you are keen to learn about how apprenticeships work and the immense benefit they can bring to a business, no matter how small, then this event is for you.

Our aim is to demystify apprenticeships, and make it as easy as possible for you to create high-quality opportunities which bring real benefit to your organisation and Hackney as a borough.

The Hackney Apprenticeship Network supports employers to create, manage, and celebrate apprenticeships. It’s free to join the network.

Organisations who go on to join the Hackney Apprenticeship Network will gain access to a range of support including:

  • Access to our pool of screened local candidates. We work with all Hackney schools, and engage with over 1,000 Hackney residents interested in apprenticeships each year

  • Support to navigate the apprenticeship funding system

  • The opportunity to apply to receive funding from Hackney Council for apprenticeship training costs

  • Support to identify suitable training organisations from our approved providers

  • Support to establish apprenticeships: creating job descriptions, contracts, and identifying the right qualification

  • Support to provide pastoral support and career development activities for apprentices

  • An annual celebration event

  • Hackney Apprenticeship Network kitemark accreditation, recognising your commitment to high-quality apprenticeships

  • Access to shadowing, secondment, and progression opportunities for your apprentices with other employers.

We'll have business champions, training providers and some of our own apprentices employed by the Council on site to talk to you and answer any questions you may have.

As part of the event we'll also be hosting our annual Apprenticeship Awards, so you can witness first hand the diversity and calibre of apprenticeships available.

We look forward to welcoming you!

*Ticket holders must be from a business or organisation from within Hackney to be eligible to attend*
