A warm welcome to our Head of Apprenticeships


Former apprentice Emma Barrett-Peel has been appointed to a newly-created position of Head of Apprenticeships to spearhead our work across the country. 
Emma will be supported by a team of specially recruited sector experts to deliver a range of Apprenticeships in professional business services, retail, customer service and leadership and management throughout England. 

Employers will be supported using a consultative approach to find the best training solutions for businesses regardless of size and ambition.  

Brighton-based Emma was an apprentice and the ‘on the job’ route created opportunities for her to become a business manager, taking on her own apprentices, before rising through the ranks to successfully manage Apprenticeships provisions for independent training providers, such as Catch 22. Emma believes in the value of Apprenticeships, which has brought her to Working Links, where she now leads the charge for work-based training.

She said: “I’m delighted to be leading Working Links’ work in this area. I and the team are really passionate about what Apprenticeships can bring to organisations, and the career prospects they give to learners. 

“We understand that finding and keeping the right people is vital to the success of businesses and we tailor our services accordingly. We’re here to help employers understand and navigate the Apprenticeship Levy and help them grow through investing in skills.”
