Apprenticeship success at Derbyshire Police headquarters – Derbyshire Times

Courtney Ellis, aged 19 from Heanor, has been working as an administrative support assistant in the Operations Support team. She said: “ I have learned so much over the last 12 months of my apprenticeship. I am based with the command team on a day to day basis which has given me the chance to work alongside the firearms department, the collision officers and the dog team. It has given me a real insight into how the constabulary operates and how vital support roles like the one I have been doing are to the organisation.”

Derbyshire Constabulary has worked with Learning Unlimited to develop a programme which ensures that apprentices are given a wide range of work experiences and quality training support to gain a qualification, at the same time as equipping them with vital employability skills.

Louie Spooner, age 17 from Derby, said: “I never realised just how big an organisation it is so it’s been fascinating to find out the sheer size and reach Derbyshire Constabulary has. I’ve worked across a range of departments and all of the staff are incredibly supportive. aI’m progressing on to a Level 3 in Social Media and Digital Marketing now.”

“I am delighted to see so many of the apprentices we have worked with over the last year move into full time roles or higher level apprenticeships with us.”
