Talking Apprenticeships at the Midlands Business Network Expo

Dispelling the myths around apprenticeships

It was great to meet so many people from across the Midlands at the Midlands Business Network Expo. We talked to people about the positive impact the Level 4 Sales Apprenticeship is having on organizations. The conference also gave us an excellent opportunity to dispel some of the myths that still surround apprenticeships:

  • Apprentices must be young people
  • Apprenticeships are just for trades
  • Learners have to spend time in college
  • Only new members of staff can be apprentices

Mercuri’s apprentices range in age from 18 to 54 and are a combination of new recruits and existing staff. The Level 4 Sales apprenticeship is designed for sales professionals. Our blended learning apprenticeship programme incorporates a combination of learning content from virtual instructor led, digital and webinars as well as assignments and classroom.

We were at the Midlands Business Network Expo on Friday 6th March at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry. We look forward to meeting you and discussing the development of your people through Apprenticeships.
