Apprenticeship Bus

Led By: Simon Ingram – Managing Director, Mountjoy

Every year, the Apprenticeship Bus embarks on an inspiring journey across the city, bringing apprentices from thriving businesses and organisations in Portsmouth directly to schools. This dynamic initiative grants students a golden opportunity to engage with these apprentices in person, offering an authentic, firsthand glimpse into the enriching world of an apprenticeship.

During each school visit, a captivating hour unfolds, during which the eager students are immersed in a captivating narrative of what the all-encompassing Apprenticeship programme has in store for them.
