Commitment to Youth with CII

Back in October, TRS’s apprentices attended the Apprenticeship Live in Bristol organised by the CII and Insurance Times, with the initiative to encourage young professionals into the sector. With TRS’s major interest with work experience placements and apprenticeship schemes, the company has teamed up with local authorities, academies and the CII to increase awareness and shape the future workforce. IMG_5019

Most recently, directors at TRS were invited to be filmed for the Connected Schools and Businesses Programme. These interviews offered insight into personal experiences, where TRS see the future and how their strategic business planning continues to include offering numerous opportunities for the younger age range. Due to TRS’s commitment to youth, they have been highly recognised as Apprenticeship Ambassadors, with this years schedule already including trips to the Houses of Parliament, presentations within schools and colleges on higher education choices, main sponsors for Skills Shows and continue to facilitate the company’s own growth of apprentices with the proposal to expand on those placed within TRS.

Insurance Times & CII support in Apprenticeships

43870_AP-Logo-LargeKick started earlier this year, the Insurance Times have joined forces with the Chartered Insurance Institute to promote apprenticeships within the industry. Hosting half day events in a number of cities, this event saw speakers from Insurance Times, CII, Zurich and a successful former apprentice, offering their experiences and the battles they face with a industry,which portrays a ‘dull’ and ‘uninspiring’ image. The afternoon allowed networking opportunities and a practical afternoon of presentations for TRS apprentices and others to get their teeth into!

The Replacement Service have employed 100% of apprentices and make up 40% of the company, ranging from apprenticeships in Software Development and Claims Handling to Social Media to Accountancy. Supporting Apprenticeships Live shows an initiative to change the perception young professionals have of insurance and together continue to offer more apprenticeships and insurance specific qualifications.

Answering questions from an Insurance Times reporter, TRS apprentices are to be featured in the next publication and online. For more information on the Insurance Times views on apprenticeships, visit www.insurancetimes.co.uk
