Caroline Dinenage MP to launch "Inspiring Apprentices" campaign. #GetInGoFar

On Monday 12 September Gosport MP Caroline Dinenage will launch an inspiring apprentices campaign, drawing attention to the immense value of apprenticeships in Gosport, Stubbington, Lee-on-the-Solent and Hill Head.

In 2014/15, 2,560 apprenticeship starts were made in the Gosport constituency. This was the 3rd highest number of starts amongst all other English constituencies. Since 2010, there has been an incredible 11,240 new apprenticeship in Gosport.

However, young people, teachers, and parents in the local area may not be fully aware of the amazing opportunities on offer. Therefore, Caroline will be publishing inspiring biographies of current Gosport apprentices to highlight the diverse and rewarding work taking place. Gosport apprentices from a range of companies including BAE Systems, Airbus Group, Defence Munitions and Tax Assist among others will all be featured.

The stories will be published each Monday on Caroline’s website and promoted via Facebook and Twitter, using the hashtag #GetInGoFar.

Caroline needs your help to raise the profile of her campaign. She is calling on you to retweet, blog and share her posts so that together, we can raise perceptions of apprenticeships in Gosport as a highly desirable route into work.

Commenting, Caroline said:

“Here in Gosport, apprentices provide an invaluable contribution to our local economy and incredibly rewarding career opportunities.

“The high number of apprenticeship starts in our local area means we have a lot to be proud of. But I want more young people from our local area to take advantage of the opportunities on offer and I want more local businesses to utilise Government support to employ a higher number of apprentices. Therefore, I am hoping you will help me raise the profile of Gosport apprenticeships by sharing these inspiring bios of young apprentices from our local area.”

The first article will be published on on Monday 12 September.
