One Million Hours of Doing Good – NCS Summer Campaign

Doing Good Flyer

NCS (National Citizen Service) has launched a countrywide campaign to enable teens to take an active role in helping the country recover from the effects of COVID-19, as lockdown begins to lift. Young People across Lancashire can now register to take part in social action during August, and pledge 16 hours of activity as part of the national One Million Hours of Doing Good campaign. Teens who volunteer will gain new skills, help rebuild their local communities and create positive and lasting change this summer. Since opening registrations NCS has had nearly 7000 young people across the country pledging to get involved.

Young people can now sign up to help Lancashire get back on its feet by visiting https://wearencs.com/ , NCS will then contact them with opportunities that are available in their local area.

Here at BT, we’re really excited to let you know our apprenticeships are now open for applications to join us in 2021. We’ve recently been voted the UK’s best private sector apprentice employer, so when it comes to apprenticeships and being a great place to start your career, we know what we’re talking about. Our apprenticeships aren’t all about selling broadband and phone lines though, we do a lot more than that.

Our Apprenticeships 

We offer apprenticeships from Level 2 through to Level 6, meaning we really have something for everything. Perhaps you want to get into Customer Service – great, we have an apprenticeship for that. IT & Technical Support? Yes, that too. Software Development, Sales, Electronics, Data Analysis, Network Design…..we could go on. All we ask is that students meet our entry requirements for a role; we can teach the rest.

Now, we can tell you how amazing it is to be an apprentice at BT all we like, but it might be best if you hear it from our apprentices themselves. Why not check out what Hannah has to say about being an apprentice? Or Muhammad? And there is always our social channels on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.   You could also listen to what more of our Early Careers employees have to say on the BT Early Careers Podcast on Spotify. Go to our website and you can find a whole host of information about the roles we offer, as well as some hints and tips to get through our application process.  

Apprenticeships at BT. The path you never considered.
