Cornwall apprentices to benefit from new Facebook group

The Cornwall Apprenticeships campaign has launched a new Facebook group, App Chat, which acts as a peer support group where apprentices can ask questions about their courses, share links to useful resources and connect with other apprentices.

The Cornwall Apprenticeships campaign represents 10 training providers and aims to raise awareness about apprenticeships with employers, young people and their parents.

Focus groups held with apprentices over the summer revealed that one of the things they miss compared with their full-time student friends is the opportunity to connect with other apprentices, to ask questions and share experiences.

Apprentices can join the group by simply clicking the ‘Join group’ option at the top of the page, and can immediately start posting and replying to other members.
