What Does 2016 Have in Store?


Now that everyone has had a few weeks to settle back into life at work, it seems like a great opportunity to look ahead as to what 2016 has in store for the Apprentices at Oxford!

At the end of 2015 we had around 50 apprentices employed with the University. This is due to expand to around 150 apprentices by April 2017, so we have predictions of seeing a lot of fresh new faces around at our events!

We are also going to have a brand new influx of ambassadors representing The University this year. In 2015 we had Emily Joyce and Sophie Jamieson who volunteered themselves for taking part in the programme. Both have represented the University at events like careers fairs, awards ceremonies and outreach projects, there is sure to be lots more exciting events like this in store for our new ambassadors.

Notable dates coming up in our diaries are:

January 19th - 20th: Oxford City Learning Careers Fest
Six apprentices from around the university will be attending along with Clive Shepherd to speak with young people, from schools all around Oxfordshire, all about the benefits of becoming an apprentice when you leave school.

February 11th: Apprenticeship Ambassador Training and Preparation Day

This is an opportunity for our new ambassadors to meet and network with some of the other apprentices outside of the university. A similar event was held in 2015, read more here - http://universityofoxfordapprentices.blogspot.co.uk/2015/07/apprenticeship-ambassador-away-day.html

March 14th - 18th: National Apprenticeship Week 2016
After the success of this event last year, it seems only right to make it bigger and better this year. - More information coming on this event soon!

With the New Year comes lots of new opportunities, don't forget to subscribe to keep up to date with all the adventures our apprentices go on throughout 2016!
