The Chambers Group has been using the Central Training Group for our apprenticeships program for the past 6 years, and it is with a heavy heart we say a fond farewell to Emma Betts, our main point of contact for this training program. 

Our apprentices have all studied Business Administration Level 2 and the course includes producing business documents, making and receiving telephone calls and use of computer software. Emma Betts headed up the delivery of the apprenticeship training internally, coming into our office to administer the modules, run the exams and performance reviews for our young members of the team. Emma has been a huge and invaluably positive influence on our apprentices, both in instilling the foundations of business administration, but also pastoral support in guiding our young team to embark on their career journey.

Over the years CTG has provided a wealth of talented apprentices for us, and a third of our overall staff members are studying or started from the apprenticeship scheme including Kieron Whitehead, Scott Golding, Jess Dodman, Harry Ellis, Jess Hawes, Cody Palmer, Leon Maulguet, Andrew Snell, Lauren Hunsdon and Riley Webber to name but a few! We also had two apprenticeships in our ranks, Kerenza Rouse and Max Evans who won the Apprentice of the Year at the Essex Business Awards; an achievement in partnership with CTG and in particular Emma.

Andrew Hilliard, Managing Director of AJ Chambers and the Chambers group said 

‘Taking on apprentices from CTG was one of the best decisions we ever made. Some of our key members of staff moved up the ranks from their apprenticeships and have proven to be invaluable members of our team. The Chambers Group will miss Emma Betts as we saw her as an extended member of our team. She provided endless enthusiasm and energy to each project and supported our young apprentices at AJ Chambers, Nelson Chambers & A&F Chambers. We wish her well in in her new apprenticeship training position in London and look forward to our continued collaboration with CTG and the apprenticeship scheme.
