TWO apprentices starred in a video broadcast on 10 Downing Street’s website to mark National Apprenticeship Week.
Joe Igoe and Rob Charter, who study at Highbury College, both featured as highways apprentices in 2012 with highway contractor Amey.
Both were filmed for the video, produced as part of the Twitter campaign #madebyapprentices which aims to celebrate the services made possible by apprentices.
Rob, from Portchester, said: ‘It was good fun to take part in the video. I was pleased to talk about my experience as an apprentice.’
David Ogden, Amey’s account director in Hampshire, added: ‘It was tipping down with rain during the filming but that didn’t dampen the enthusiasm from Rob and Joe, who epitomised the positive approach from the apprentices in the Hampshire team.’
Joe, Rob and six other apprentices are due to finish their 18-month apprenticeships in April and move into permanent jobs with Amey.
