The Apprenticeship Council has announced details of twenty‐five national employer ambassadors who are actively promoting the value and benefit of apprenticeship for Irish businesses. The ambassadors are from around the country and work in industry sectors which include finance, tech, insurance, engineering, electrical, logistics, hairdressing, hospitality and biopharma.

In the Midland region, Brendan Mahon of Banagher Precast Concrete and Irish Concrete Federation member, has stepped forward to drive the “Generation Apprenticeship 2020” message to local and regional employers.

Banagher Precast Concrete currently employs 8 apprentices and are working at local and national level to communicate the power and benefits of apprenticeships, focusing primarily on business‐to‐business promotion, but also working with local schools, parents and community groups.

Any apprenticeship employer who is interested in joining the Generation Apprenticeship Employer Ambassador scheme can contact [email protected] for more information.
