Earlier this week Rachel Reeves MP, Shadow Work & Pensions Secretary, visited our Crawley branch and met our apprentices in training over a cup of coffee.

Our apprentices described what was involved in their role and outlined the training provided by Clarkson Evans as well as explaining why they had decided to go down the apprenticeship route to obtain a recognised professional qualification and long-term career prospects to boot.

“It was inspiring to visit Clarkson Evans. They have really embraced apprenticeships and offer a great scheme with amazing opportunities for their staff,” said Rachel after the visit.

Crawley apprentice Cian Morgan-Smith was one of the apprentices who met the Shadow Minister. He said: “The best thing about a good apprenticeship is that when you come out you’ve got a job and in the meantime you are working, learning and earning – you can’t say that about university.

“It was really good to meet Rachel Reeves and be able to put across the importance of encouraging more good quality apprenticeships because I think the more we have the better.”
