About Ben Clarke
Please summarise why you think you would make a good apprentice ambassador?
I have been actively promoting apprenticeships to young people and employers for the last seven years, to increase awareness and change perceptions. As a former apprentice, I know the benefits first hand and now have the privilege of mentoring and developing apprentices at Superior to ensure they reach their full potential. I created an apprentice network in Dorset called “Apprentices Mean Business” to promote apprenticeships as an outstanding career option. I hope to continue growing this network in conjunction with YAAN in pursuit of apprenticeships being considered as a first choice.
What was the apprenticeship application / recruitment process like?
I applied to local employers with apprenticeship vacancies and followed through the employer I wished to work for.
