National Apprenticeship Week 2024

By Fiona Wilkins - February 7th, 2024 | Posted in Article

The Trust has been celebrating National Apprenticeship Week by featuring apprentices working in schools, college centres and central teams, including our very own Mr Walker who is working towards his Level 3 apprenticeship.

As a keen cricketer and sports enthusiast, he loves working in the PE department at St Philip’s. He also supports the Primary pupils and brings his energy into the classroom.

Mr Walker was a pupil at St Philip’s School and after he left school, he went to the Harlequins Foundation and learnt coaching skills. He jumped at the opportunity to return to his old school as a Learning Support Assistant apprentice. He says he loves supporting the children at St Philip’s and says they can can often relate to him as he has been in their place.
