National Apprenticeship Week 2020 #NAW2020 #LookBeyond
As part of our effort to inspire young people looking to become an Apprentice and as part of National Apprenticeship Week, Capital 4 Training would like to go over some famous former apprentices that you’ve probably heard of, but you might not know that they were apprentices themselves back in their youth. It just goes to show, Apprenticeships can unlock many pathways for you in life.
Sir Ian McKellen
We all know who Sir Ian McKellen is, he’s played many roles in his career but you could argue he’s most well known for his role as ‘Gandalf’ in the Lord of The Rings films – but did you know that this now renown actor didn’t go to drama school like you’d think. He actually spent three years as an Apprentice Actor at Belgrade Theatre in Coventry.
One of the leading women in fashion, specialising in Coats, Tailoring and Evening-wear Karen Miller was once a Fashion Apprentice at Medway College where she learnt important skills to take her on to be one of the most recognisable names in women’s fashion.
One of the worlds most well-known chefs Jamie Oliver started his journey as an Apprentice Caterer, learning new and valuable skills that would help him to become the successful chef that he is today.
Sir Alex Ferguson
Sir Alex Ferguson had a very different start to his journey. He started as an Apprentice Tool Worker – obviously a big difference to what he’s more well known for these days. However the interpersonal skills he learnt as an Apprentice have surely helped him in his career.
Elvis, the king of Rock and Roll. Before pursuing his successful career in music, Elvis was actually studying to become an Apprentice electrician.
We hope these famous former apprentices mentioned inspire you to think about embarking on an Apprenticeship.
Join us tomorrow as we discuss some tips when you apply to an apprenticeship and how to successfully sell yourself to employers looking to hire a fresh faced apprentice.
