Incoming ICE President, Sir John Armitt, has selected six apprentices to shadow him during his year in office.
They will also have the opportunity to work on a strategic project to make a contribution to the profession.
The ICE President’s Apprentice Scheme is open to all technicians and ICE graduate members working towards their professional qualification and has been running since 2005. It offers a unique opportunity to gain experience, develop skills, learn about the industry and be mentored by the ICE President.
This year the scheme is expanding to include a more extended career development programme. The apprentices will attend ICE events, meet senior industry people and join Armitt on regional visits.
Armitt’s apprentices will automatically become part of the President’s Apprentice “alumni network” after his presidential term ends. This will provide career long opportunities to engage and network with a dynamic peer group.
