Trainee Business & Marketing Assistant Bradley Longford has addressed regional employers on social media as chair of the Young Apprenticeship Ambassador Network (YAAN).
In addition to his day job, Bradley is a proud apprenticeship ambassador and chairs the YAAN network in Yorkshire & Humber. Over the past few months, Bradley has engaged with employers in a range of industries and spoken to apprentices to encourage more people to become YAAN ambassadors. To keep the momentum going, Bradley has taken to social media with a call to action to engage with more employers in the region.
The YAAN is made up of current and past apprentices aged 18–26; its members aim to inspire future apprentices through a variety of activities. Becoming part of YAAN has wide reaching benefits for both apprentices and businesses including:
- Giving back to the local community
- Insight and opportunity to shape the future of apprenticeships
- Harness the breadth of knowledge within the network
