Tuesday 9th February: #AskAnEmployer Forum
To kick off our National Apprenticeship Week we are bringing together some of First Intuition’s clients from industry and practice. More particularly those who currently have apprentices studying with us. This Forum will help answer questions you might have regarding how employment works as an apprentice as well as what you can expect once you have enrolled. We understand approaching big employers can sometimes be daunting and that’s before you’ve even worked out who you want to contact. So join us on the 9th February at 4 PM where will have a host of employers including James Tucker from Scrutton Bland, Kim Hardman and Emma Wood from AstraZeneca and Jill Wright and Amy Carter from Kirk Newsholme! They will be ready to answer your questions and help build your future.
Wednesday 10th February: #AskAnApprentice Instagram Takeover

Wednesday 10th February: #AskAnApprentice Lunchtime Forum
Sometimes there are questions that only apprentices can answer, and this is your chance to ask them!
For our penultimate event, you will have the chance to ask questions to a panel of apprentices currently studying at First Intuition. Whether it’s technical questions regarding the qualification, how they find juggling work duties and apprenticeship tasks, or where to begin with applying for a role, the apprentices will be on hand to help. This one-hour forum will be taking place at 12 PM and will also be broadcasted to our Facebook Pages.
