Why choose the Chamber?

We know there are loads of options out there for young people and that it can be difficult to know which route to take. With so many training providers offering dozens of different courses the question you probably want answering is ‘why should I choose Chamber Apprenticeships and what makes them different from the rest?’

For a start, 98% of our Apprentice graduates remain in a job once they have finished their course. We think that’s pretty impressive and whilst that statistic is ultimately down to the fantastic efforts and attitude of our apprentices, we’re very proud of the role we play in making sure so many of our apprentices go on to enjoy success in the world of work.

There are a number of reasons why we have such a great record and why Chamber Apprenticeships is a wise choice.

We’ll support you every step of the way

Firstly, as with anything new, we know starting an Apprenticeship is a big deal and can be a little daunting when you’re starting out. That’s why we pride ourselves on giving each of our apprentices their own personal Chamber contact who you’ll get to know really well along your journey. They’ll be there for you every step of the way and always on hand when you need them; from your first to your last day. We really do think the support we offer our apprentices is second to none but don’t take our word for it – why not click here to have a look at what some of our apprentices have to say about us.

Another reason we’re so passionate about Apprenticeships and why we think we’ll be the right fit for you is our great reputation and relationship with businesses.

As well as our Apprenticeship programmes, we have a big part to play in the business community. The Chamber is the second-largest Chamber of Commerce in the entire country with over 3,800 local businesses of all sizes as members. That means we have some fantastic contacts out there with some of the region’s biggest and most high-profile businesses. We don’t just partner you up with any old business, we can guarantee quality.

What’s more, whilst we don’t like to blow our own trumpet, as the leading business organisation in the East Midlands we’re very well-known and respected in the business world and that’s why coming on board with us doesn’t just give you all the great benefits of an apprenticeship, it connects you to our name and puts us on your CV. That helps you stand out from the crowd.

We know that everyone is different and we treat each and every one of our apprentices as individuals and with respect. Whatever your requirements, we’re sure Chamber Apprenticeships will be a great fit for you.
