As it’s #NationalApprenticeshipWeek from 8-14 February 2021, we wanted to introduce you to our new apprentice Cory.
Cory from Redcar has been a volunteer with various Footprints in the Community projects for the last two years, including at our Footprints Community Café, Lunchbox project and Next Step Shop.
During the pandemic Cory became a vital part of the Next Step Shop team, making up parcels of everyday food essentials for delivery to shop members. His commitment to his volunteering role was recognised by Footprints, who wanted to help him start his career with the apprenticeship scheme.
Cory said, “Volunteering has helped me with my general confidence and it’s something that I’ve really enjoyed doing. I’m happy to be able to continue helping local people, now that I’m an apprentice at Footprints in the Community.”
Welcome to the team Cory!
