Warrington Chamber of Commerce upskills its staff with Warrington & Vale Royal College’s new Multi-channel Marketer Apprenticeship

Warrington Chamber of Commerce has taken advantage of the Council’s apprentice levy initiative and Warrington & Vale Royal College’s new Multi-channel Marketer Apprenticeship to upskill a key member of their team.

Warrington Chamber of Commerce apprentice

Carolyne Kasangwa joined Warrington Chamber of Commerce in 2019 whilst studying business administration at Warrington & Vale Royal College. An opportunity arose to add digital marketing to her export supporting role and she commenced the 18-month apprenticeship in the autumn of 2023. The skills Carolyne learns during her apprenticeship will enable the Chamber to introduce new and innovative ways to communicate with its members and raise awareness of important products and services.

Carolyne commented: “As a former student I was excited to be studying at the college once again. My business administration apprenticeship really helped me understand the importance of my current role at the Chamber. Multi-channel marketing will enable me to become involved in other areas of the business and I’m really looking forward to it”.

Chamber Chief Executive, Stephen Fitzsimons, added: “Continuous personal development is something that is really important at Warrington Chamber of Commerce because it helps to keep our staff motivated and engaged. We are delighted to be working with the college once more because the team is very proactive in meeting the needs of local businesses”.

Stephen added: “All large organisations pay the apprenticeship levy; however, many do not need to utilise all of it for themselves. Warrington Borough Council operates a levy transfer where local companies in key sectors can potentially tap into unspent balances to recruit or train within the apprentice levy framework.”

College Business Centre Manager, Faye Hennessey, commented: “The college has a longstanding relationship with Warrington Chamber of Commerce and we’re thrilled to once again be working with them. It is fantastic that the Chamber provides their staff the opportunity to develop their knowledge and enhance their skills, ultimately boosting business performance.”
