APPRENTICES in Chichester reminded bosses what it’s like to be a newcomer.

The young people took part in work shadowing sessions during National Apprenticeship Week, last week, and showed bosses the ropes.

Tom Crabb, who works at Chichester Library, led Mary Bolche, assistant principal of Chichester College, around his place of work for an afternoon.

Mrs Bolche said: ‘I got a huge amount from the day, met some lovely people and learnt some fascinating things.’

Four West Sussex County Council apprentices were asked to show senior managers the ropes during work shadowing sessions.

Business admin apprentice Hannah Gillies, who works at the council’s early childhood service in Chichester, was shadowed by the county council’s director of customer service, Diane Ashby.

The council’s deputy chairman Mick Hodgson shadowed surveying apprentices.

An information stand was set up by the county council at Chichester College to promote apprenticeships to students.
