Maldon and Burnham Standard: Lucy White, 19, is an apprentice accountant Lucy White, 19, is an apprentice accountant

The positive impact of apprenticeships on both people and businesses has been celebrated this week.

Since 2009, 2,665 Essex apprentices have been recruited by businesses and National Apprentice Week, 3-7 March, highlighted the scheme’s success.

Lucy White, 19, joined the Essex County Council part-funded apprenticeship after finishing a full-time college course.

She wanted to train and study as an accountant at the same time as gaining practical work experience.

The programme has enabled her to achieve her Level 3 qualification while also working full time, as opposed to doing a part time college course with no experience.
