The apprentice perspective: breaking down social mobility barriers

Amazing Apprenticeships, the team behind The Genie Programme, have announced their next free-to-attend workshop for apprenticeship employers and this time they are doing things a little differently!

Time for Change; Barriers to access – the apprentice perspective’ invites 2 brilliant apprentices to take to the virtual stage for a panel discussion that gets right to the heart of what it is like for diverse and disadvantaged young people navigating the world of apprenticeships.

Joining us to offer insight from an apprentice perspective will be Haider Ali, Management Accounting Apprentice at Rolls Royce and Elle Melrose, Priority Service Lead at Bulb, who will share their first-hand experience of common and often-preventable barriers and focus on the simple things employers and training providers can put in place to address them.

Melrose is an active diversity and inclusion champion with nine years of experience, highly motivated to ensure consistency becomes the norm and has recently written for The Times.

Ali is in the final year of his higher apprenticeship scheme with Rolls Royce, is a 2020 BAME Apprenticeship Awards winner, Worldskills Rising Star and a diversity and inclusion advocate.

Join our expert panel, chaired by Amazing Apprenticeships employer relationship manager and Genie Programme lead, Tom Pritchard as they explore what needs to change and how we can collectively strive to make such experiences better.
