Recently Kim Walters, Cadent’s Customer Liaison Officer for the Hydrogen Village, visited Whitby High School to talk to some of their senior pupils about her role with Cadent and how being an apprentice can be a great option when leaving school for many young people. Kim was invited by Cheshire & Warrington Pledge Partnership whose aim is to help individuals make informed decisions about gaining qualifications and skills that match the opportunities available locally and build awareness of employers and sectors within our region.

James Pritchard, (Enterprise Advisor Cheshire and Warrington Pledge) said:

“The Pledge were honoured to have Kim present her Cadent apprenticeship story with The Whitby High School’s Year 13s, the pupils were incredibly engaged and interested in seeing how she applied and completed her apprenticeship. Testament to Kim’s success was the number of young people who came to ask both the Pledge and Kim more about apprenticeships both with Cadent and across other sectors. Without Kim and Cadent’s help, the Employment Readiness Programme would not be the success that it is across Cheshire and Warrington.”
