Apprentices to earn their crust

Ambassadors from across the North East are hoping to have their cake and eat it, to mark National Apprenticeship Week 2023.

The North East Apprenticeship Ambassador Network’s (NEAAN) “Great Apprenticeship Bake Off” puts members through their paces, as they compete to create the greatest bake in a British Army kitchen.

The event marks the national celebration of apprenticeships. NEAAN once again worked with the British Army for the Bake-Off, in which North East Ambassadors compete in a baked goods battle royal, part of a week-long programme of events to celebrate apprenticeships and demonstrate the benefits they offer individuals and businesses of all sizes.

NEAAN Co-Chair, Ian Green MBE, said: “We always challenge Ambassadors to come up with an exciting week of events and activities for Apprenticeship Week, but the Bake Off has proved such a success it is becoming the mainstay of our annual calendar. Our aim is to do something fun that takes Ambassadors out of their comfort zone, but challenges them to use the skills they have learned and apply them in a totally different professional setting.”

Jenienne Hinchcliffe, Co-Chair of NEAAN, said: “Across Apprenticeship Week 2023, we stage a range of events to not only engage with potential future apprentices but also showcase how much an enthusiastic, motivated apprentice can bring to a business.”

Apprentice Ambassador Chair, Natasha Scorer, said: “Apprenticeship Week is a great way to not only celebrate apprenticeships, but also kick off NEAAN’s push for new employer and apprentice Ambassadors. This year promises to be a really exciting one for our network.”
