Coca Cola and Premier Foods Join The Genie Programme
Amazing Apprenticeships have announced the first members of cohort 1 of The Genie Programme which opens in May 2021.
Designed to educate and inspire individuals around the most complex of social mobility, diversity and inclusion issues, The Genie Programme supports participants to explore the challenges faced by disadvantaged and diverse apprentices, look at the social and business impact their organisation could achieve by tapping into such varied talent, research, brainstorm, gain new perspectives, and deliver a tailored ‘pitch for change’ for their organisation to act.
“I’m so excited to be part of the first-ever cohort for The Genie Programme – there’s nothing else out there like it. It’s specifically for apprenticeships and early careers professionals who want to improve access to opportunity, and to drive social mobility and workforce diversity. After the year we’ve all had it feels like this is needed now more than ever. We’re really, really excited as a business about this programme.” Said Sharon Blyfield, senior manager, people and culture, GB early careers and apprenticeships for Coca-Cola European Partners.
