Our Programme Manager, Michelle Fenwick and our Business Support and Communications Officer, Emma Lacey have been running an induction for a group of Business Skills Foundation Apprentices who will be completing the work placement element of the qualification with the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce.
100% of the young people rated the induction either 4 or 5 out of 5.
Throughout the induction the young people developed an awareness of the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce alongside learning about policies and procedures in business with emphasis on health and safety and working from home.
We asked the young people what they learned, they said:
“What a Chamber of Commerce actually is and what it does.”
We also asked what the best part of their induction was, they said:
“Learning about the various departments in the Chamber of Commerce.”
“I have thoroughly enjoyed throughout my online learning, the ice breaker tasks which allowed the lecturers as well as us students to get to know each other.”
Throughout the induction the young people demonstrated enthusiasm, curiosity, interest, initiative and positive attitudes all round. This skill set will be developed further as they progress into a department each of the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce including; Membership, Marketing and Communications, Policy, International, Circular Edinburgh and Training and Development.
