Transport for Wales launches new Apprenticeship Academy

Transport for Wales has launched a new Apprenticeship Academy that will provide all apprentices with additional knowledge and skills to complement their learning within their apprenticeship discipline.

Academi Prentisiaeth will provide all 30 apprentices in Transport for Wales with extra learning, focused on developing their professional and personal skill base. The internal programme allows young people at TfW to gain their vocational qualification but also to embark on a personal development programme, allowing them to kickstart their careers.

Launched during National Apprenticeship Week, the apprentices started the first programme of the academy, Ffynnu (meaning thrive in Welsh), a series of monthly masterclasses exploring skills such as leadership, public speaking, health and wellbeing, sustainability and more.
