National Apprenticeship Week (NAW) 2020 runs from 3 - 9 February 2020.

The theme of NAW 2020 is #LookBeyond, asking employers and colleagues to celebrate the diversity and value that apprenticeships bring to businesses and local communities.

At Sodexo, you make the difference – we know this because of the amazing work you do every day.

Did you know that in the last in the last twelve months, Sodexo has invested more than £2 million into its apprenticeship programme through the apprenticeship levy fund?

This is just one way we are demonstrating our commitment to nurture your talent. The levy fund means apprenticeship opportunities truly are available to everyone in any role and at any level*.

The apprenticeship programme grows year-on-year, with more opportunities being added to tailor the process wherever possible. Sodexo now offers more than 50 different types of qualifications. This means that even if you have existing qualifications, there will be an option available to you.

To give you the easiest route to start your apprenticeship journey, a simple registration form has been created. The form can be completed by managers and employees wishing to register interest for more information from one of Sodexo’s trusted apprenticeship providers.

Click here to access the form.

Throughout NAW 2020, we would like you to show your apprentice appreciation by sharing your experiences and successes on social media. You can also head over to our career blogs to read more from people across the business, and discover why becoming an apprentice is so rewarding.

Be alert to out of scope work

It’s our job to stay focussed on keeping our clients happy and providing great service, but what do you do if you’ve been asked to complete a task that’s not part of Sodexo’s contract? We call this ‘out of scope’ work, and with it comes a higher risk of accidents. Get the support you need and stay safe.

Don't skate on thin ice

Over the festive period, did you check your mulled wine wasn’t too hot to drink? Or take a trolley to pick up the big Christmas food shop, instead of straining to carry a heavy basket? These are simple risk assessments we all make in everyday life to keep ourselves and others safe. Yet we sometimes forget to apply the same at work and keep up-to-date with crucial HSEQ changes.

 
Festive 5 Elf
 

Mental ‘elf’ comes first

In December 2020, we encouraged everyone to put their mental ‘elf’ front and centre by taking part in Festive 5 – our regional festive Stop Hunger fundraiser. With your support, the activity collectively raised more than £2,700 that will go towards helping those most vulnerable within our local communities.

Start the New Year as we mean to go on

Back to work but feeling a bit out of sorts? It can take a while to get back into a work routine after a break, but be sure not to let safety take a back seat and help us to avoid the January 'bruise'.

Making a difference to young people

New volunteering opportunities are now available on the Stop Hunger Goodness Platform, including a virtual Christmas messaging service supporting YMCA.
