Celebrating National Apprenticeship Week 2023

Celebrating National Apprenticeship Week 2023

The 6th February marks the start of National Apprenticeship Week 2023. The 16th annual week-long celebration of apprenticeships, taking place across England, will showcase the impact apprenticeships can have on communities, local businesses, and regional economies and how they all benefit from the impact of apprenticeships. 

We can't wait to join in on National Apprenticeship Week, and share some of our amazing apprentice's achievements and the opportunity's an apprenticeship has given them. 

The theme this year is #SkillsForLife - something we are huge advocates of here at #cHRysosHR. We want to share some of our apprentices’ experiences on how an apprenticeship programme with #cHRysos has helped to develop their skills and further their careers. 


Meet Claire Perry, who is currently studying a Level 5 HR Apprenticeship with us.

Claire Perry, HR Advisor at Oxfam GB.


When did you start your apprenticeship journey?

I started my apprenticeship in January 2022 alongside also a new secondment as HR Advisor. Since then, I am learning new theory and skills with each module, and I am now permanently in the role as HR Advisor at Oxfam GB.


How has being on an apprenticeship helped you?

The apprenticeship is really helping me develop and grow my skills in HR. I am able to put my learnings into practice, and equally am able to see what we do at work relayed back in the module learnings e.g. Working with Trade Unions, Disciplinary process and Unfair Dismissal law. The apprenticeship is equipping me with the knowledge to a better HR Advisor, and also the programme itself allows me to develop further my time management and prioritisation skills.


What have you enjoyed most about being on programme with cHRysos?

What I am enjoying most about my programme with cHRysos is all the new learning. For example, Talent and Resourcing is an area of HR that I have not been familiar with. The current module on Talent and Resourcing is giving me much more knowledge and allowing me to explore what takes place in my own organisation, as well as externally.
