Colin Kemp - Deputy Leader of the Council

Apprenticeships are really important to the economy of Surrey. Being an apprentice meets a skills need we need within the County. I started my life as an apprentice motor mechanic and it lead to good things, actually we don't all have to get university and get a degrees. The skills needed within the County is fed by apprenticeships, going through a college education and actually getting that experience on the ground that an apprenticeship brings you in your working life. Actually employers are looking for people that have experience as well as qualifications and that's what an apprenticeship brings to the table.

Here at Surrey County Council we are bringing more and more apprenticeships into our work life here because actually it's important to grow tomorrows people to actually feed into that network so we actually build the skill sets that we need tomorrow. If you look at the diversity we need throughout Surrey and the skills that are needed apprenticeships are an important part of that to actually build the foundation of the workforce within our County that grows the economy within Surrey.

It is really important that if you want to consider being an apprentice to look at the courses that are available, to look at the career opportunities an apprenticeship can bring you and actually feed into that and consider that in your work life as you go forward.

2030 Vision:

An important part of Surrey's 2030 vision is actually finding the skills gap and actually people not being left behind so actually being an apprentice feeds into that and is an important part of the makeup of Surreys workforce and actually drives the economy forwards which is all part of our Vision to make Surrey healthy, wealthy and a good place to live for everybody.
