Alongside Hertfordshire LEP, Lord Charles works to improve the number and quality of apprenticeship opportunities in Hertfordshire. Having heard about our successful and long-standing Apprenticeship Programme which trains and employs local people, Lord Charles visited our offices to meet and chat with three of our current apprentices who are employed in various roles across our business. He praised the work that we do to reach young people from all backgrounds, and for expertly training them, supporting them, and helping them to achieve a qualification whilst earning.
The MCP team was thrilled to receive a visit from Julie Marson MP in July. Julie was keen to learn more about our work, the many community projects and charities that we are involved with in her constituency and our apprenticeship programme. Julie enthusiastically spent time with some of our apprentices, asking them how they came to work at MCP and the jobs that they do, something that was really appreciated by the whole team.
Appointed by Her Majesty the Queen to represent her in the County of Hertfordshire, High Sherriff, Sally Burton DL, works on matters relating to law and order and a wide range of public and voluntary sector and community services that help to make Hertfordshire a better place for everyone.
In July this year, we were honoured by a visit from Sally who had heard how we make a difference to those living in social housing by looking after their homes with care and empathy, and by proactively engaging in community projects.
During her visit, Sally met with several members of our team, including two of our commercial trainees. We told her about some of the valuable projects that we have carried out recently, including installing a new defibrillator in a local shopping area, finding skips for residents, and how we support them with basic DIY skills.
