WE’VE done it! Just 22 days into our campaign to find 100 new apprenticeship opportunities in 100 days, we’ve hit our target.

The scheme was launched by Colchester Institute at the start of March, backed by the Gazette, Colchester MP Sir Bob Russell and the National Apprenticeship Service.

Less than a quarter of the way in, we have had 105 pledges and they are still coming in.

Despite reaching our target, we are not stopping here.

The campaign still has two months left, and we are hoping to collect as many pledges as possible in that time.
